    is it possible to change the power settings in RT7 Lite so they are changed when W7 is installed

    i want a autoinstall DVD without having to make any changes when i have finished the install.

    You can have RT7 Lite make changes to the registry, that's one of the standard features. I've never done what you ask, but I know the registry has multiple entries related to power plan. I'd think one could be edited to be what plan you want. There may be a specific option to do that. Have you asked Rockers Team the question?

    But why? If you had it permanently set for power saving for a laptop and install 7 on a high end game-playing box you won't like it and if you have max performance installed on a marginal laptop, you'll kill your battery quicker than normal. I guess it'd be a good thing if you always installed your power plan adjusted version on the appropriate machine, but that just seems like a very restrictive way to do it.

    I much prefer to tweak the power plan to what the individual machine likes best and not try and predetermine that. It makes no difference where I start from to do that so I just let 7 make the initial decision.
