5.x PPR - POWER.EXE may slow down PPR

Description

power.exe is a device that can be loaded in the config.sys that is used to reduce power consumption when applications are idle. It is possible that this device may not recognize PPR as being active (when PPR is run in DOS) and power down resources, leaving PPR in a wait state until it sees user activity.

power.exe was really intended for portables and not needed for desktop computers.

Solution

Remove power.exe from the config.sys.
