Windows 7: No Power Management tab in Wireless Properties

No Power Management tab in Wireless Properties

Hi, I have the linksys WMP300N wireless card on Win7 32bit. Anyway in the linksys properties there is no power management tab.. I want to uncheck the box that let's windows power down the device. But without the tab I can't. I know it is probably a driver issue for the WMP300N doesn't have the best driver support for win 7 but it works. Anyway was wondering if anyone knew of another way I could access the power management other then wireless properties.. Maybe through the registry?

Any help would be great

That means that the device driver doesnt have the feature implemented, nothing you can do.

You can try going into "power options" in the control panel and seeing if you have the option there, but thats the only other place i can think of.

Computer Management - Missing the Properties Menu
I stumbled upon this thread, but it's pretty old, so I thought I'd start a new one. In XP in Computer Management, you could right click on the computer and get a Properties option. This was especially useful if you were connecting to a remote computer. For example, you could edit the environment...
