Recommended Power Settings for Windows 7
By default, Win7 does not allow the CPU to step down when using an external power supply.
The advantage of stepping down is not only that the CPU has a lower power consumption but that the computer case does not heat up so much and stays cool.
To allow CPU step down you do the following:
- Open the control panel and click on "Hardware and Sound".
- Go to "Power Options" and click on "Change battery settings".
- After that click for the selected power plan on "Change plan settings".
- Go further to "Change advances power settings".
- In the just opened window "Power Options", you are able to set the minimum processor state in percent under "Processor power management" > "Minimum processor state" > "Plugged in". It's recommended to use the same settings as for battery usage.
Besides the settings for CPU step down you can change the wake timers for the standby modes. The advantage is, that applications are able to wake up the system automatically from standby mode.
To enable the wake timers you follow the points 1 to 4. After that the wake timers can be enabled under "Sleep" > "Allow wake timers".

How do I install UPDD?
Before installing UPDD (Universal Pointer Device Driver) uninstall existing drivers for the touchscreen you want to install. After that execute the setup and choose the touchscreen you want to install. If it's a serial touchscreen you have to choose the right COM port. In general it's COM4 for roda Tablet PCs and COM1 for roda Notebooks. (After installation you can add additional touchscreens or remove and change existing touchscreens.)
After successful installation an UPDD icon appears in SysTray. In it's context menu you can e.g. calibrate the touchscreen.
