If you are using ChiroPulse on a computer, laptop or tablet that is on desk & not used portably there are some useful settings you really should use to optimize your ChiroPulse experience & performance.  Please follow these two easy steps!  Printable View Printable View

1. Disable sleep on your laptop/tablet when plugged in.

If you are using a computer that is plugged in you don’t want it going to sleep until you tell it to go to sleep. Putting the computer to sleep shuts down the network connection, freezes applications (like ChiroPulse) and takes time to wake up and login. This is an unnecessary annoyance.

In Windows 10 simply click the windows button and type sleep then select “Power and Sleep Settings“. In Windows 7 use Control Panel “Power settings” then click “Change when the computer sleeps”. Set sleep to never and “turn off display” in a 2-hours or more. Likewise in power options turn on “high performance” mode.

When leaving your computer unattended with access by patients, use WINKEY+L to lock your computer requiring Windows login to proceed. Also use the PRIVACY button in ChiroPulse to protect your data when the computer is not left unattended.

2. Keep Network Adapters Connected & Powered On

This one is a total annoyance for desktop PCs especially as most PCs come defaulted to “power friendly mode” that allows the network adapters to go to “sleep” even when the PC is in use. This is a horrible user experience as it saves almost no power and interrupts your productivity by killing your network and internet connection. Here is what to do.

In Windows 10 hit Windows key and type Network and Sharing then open Network and Sharing Center. On Windows 7 find this from Control Panel. Next select “Change adapter settings” on the left

Click “Change Adapter Settings” on the left side.

From the Network Connections window right click over the ETHERNET adapter and select properties.

Right click and select Properties

Next click the Configure button

Click “Configure”

Uncheck “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”

Finally click the Power Management tab and UNCHECK “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Then press OK & exit control panel settings.

When completed this will allow your network connection to stay alive whenever the computer is on which is desired.

Take a few minutes to do this from each PC and laptop in your office.
