Power Plans?

Hi there,

How do I create a custom power plan with modified Advanced setting so that the laptop sleeps after 30 mins on charge.

At the moment am using Balanced and want to keep using it, but when in advanced setting I change the default to e.g Require password from Yes to No, Wireless settings etc the lap wont sleep after 30 mins or 15 mins on battery.

Any expert assistance would be appreciated.

click change plan settings, then advance settings.

I can post screen shots if that would help.

Thanks for your expert reply.

One more question regarding the drives, should they be set at 5 mins plus sleep time, i.e 35 and 20 respectively?

Coz have burnt my lap's graphic card several times.
