If you are going to put the computer to sleep THAT long, hibernate it. Or enable hybrid sleep. At least you'll save battery life, and not screw up the remaining time estimate system of the battery, and need to recalibrate more often than needed.
Has anyone had their E6410 waking up from sleep by itself in the middle of the night? A number of times I put the E6410 into sleep for the night and in the morning I find that it has no battery, which means that it probably turned on by itself sometime in the night...
Event Viewer's System Log should show what has woken the computer up and when.
How can I get Dell Connection Manager to manage my wireless/wired connections? We're getting a lot of users with duplicate IP's, because they are on wireless and wired connections.
DCP Connection Manager does not manage IP addresses. This is done by a DHCP server on your LAN, often built into routers. Wired and wireless clients are issued a unique IP address from a range of IP addresses administered by the DHCP server.
Duplicate IP addresses suggests multiple DHCP servers issuing IP addresses from the same range. If so, perhaps reconfigure each DHCP server to use its own address range. Or reconsider your network.
I want software to turn off the wireless, when they have LAN hooked up, and when LAN is not hooked up, turn on wireless.
The way the old quickset works.
I see... an auto wifi switch. Windows should make this a default property on a wireless connection... Disable when wired. Or Dell should make this an option in the BIOS... Disable WLAN if LAN. The user could use the switch, or set the WLAN to not connect automatically.
