Scott, is it true that sharing a folder over a network can interfere with a system going into Hibernate mode?

Usually it is the other way around, if a system sharing a resource goes into sleep or hibernate mode then the resource will be unavailable. However, if a system is configured to Wake-on-Lan (WOL) then an attempted access of the shared resource will cause the system to wake. In that case the resource would become available after a delay, which would be much longer from Hibernate than from Sleep mode. Scott.

I have a Linksys WUSB100 adapter for the desktop PC I mainly use. The PC in question has Windows 7 Professional installed. The Power Saving Mode for my current power scheme is currently set to Maximum Performance. Scott, do you think it would be safe to change the setting to Maximum Power Saving?

It would be "safe" to set any of the available modes. However I rarely use Maximum Power Savings even on laptops. In most cases I prefer a customized power configuration based on specific needs, and one of the needs I almost always have is performance. Scott.

Scott, have you personally tried either Low Power Saving or Medium Power Saving on a laptop with satisfactory results?

I've tried all modes, but I always settle on custom. Scott.
