Windows 7: Windows 7 default power settings?

Windows 7 default power settings?

Do you guys use the default "Balance" power settings?

I will be installing the RTM soon, I'm currently running 7100 RC and using "Performance" settings cause my PC would not wake up, lol once it goes into sleep mode using the default "Balance" settings.

What settings do you guys use?

Thanks.

I (although i probably shouldn't) have mine turned up to the max. Grayscale blurry screensaver after 10 mins, display off after 30 mins. Sleep after 2hrs.

Thanks for the feedback.

Do you need to do anything to wake up your PC after it goes into the "Sleep" mode after 2 hrs? or simply hitting the RTN/any keys on the keyboard would wake up your PC?

I have a touchscreen so just a little tap on the screen wakes it up.
