permanently disable `power saving' on mutliple NICs

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Robert Sudbury, Nov 16, 2004.

  1. - about 12 different motherboards all Intel Chipsets except one SiS based
    - about the same number of variations of Intel 100 NICs, and a RealTekRT8139
    (add-on and onboard)
    - NIC could be in any of up to three different PCI slots on each motherboard

    A common W98se ghost image used on all platform combinations, works fine,
    redetecting all hardware and loading all drivers, including all of the
    possible different NICs.

    I want to permanently disable the ability for Windows to `turn off this
    device to save power' for any possible NICs. I want those NICs to never be
    able to turn off.

    On a newly ghosted platform, Windows enables this feature for that newly
    discovered NIC by default. Manually changing this check box after ghosting
    is not an option. I'm looking for a registry option that will permanently
    disallow Windows enabling this checkbox.

    This must be done without affecting any other power management features.

    Can it be done?
