    Hi everybody,
    I use my computer for video editing which is a heavy computational task and can take hours to complete. What power options should be selected for this kind of a task? As far as I understand, sleeping and hibernation should be disabled completely. But what about Hard Disk and processor? If I understand correctly, hard Disk will not go to sleep if it is being used by a program, so there is no need to disable turning Hard Disk off after a certain time. And in the Processor power management section there is "Minimum processor state" which is set to 5% by default. Should I leave it as it is or will setting it to 100% increase the speed of video processing? Any other recommendations regarding power management?
