Partitioning Software is running on a PC.
After 20 min of running the "MiniTool Partitioning Wizard", the PC shuts down.
Loss of DC-Power at Hard Drive and Board.
I suspect, a Power setting has been enabled, to shut down the PC aftyer 20 min being idle.
(The program advised, to disable Power Saving Settings - I have overlooked that)
I re-started the PC ,
the Monitor shows no desktop, no action after keys or mouse are pressed,
It displays the Progress and process of the Partitioning Wizard.
Again for 20 min and then ,shuts down.
I like to cancel the partitioning process, but there is no Desktop displayed.
After every new start-up,
the Wizard runs the program again and the Screen shows only the Partitioning proces.
20 min is insuficcient time for the program to complete the partitioning task.
How about maintaining the Power Supply of 5V and 12V DC at the terminals, to keep the Hard
Drive and the Board operational for a longer time than the 20 min ?
The wizard can then complete the task.
Is there a Relay that switches off the supply from the Power Supply?
Is there a short cut which may stop that programm.?
Is there a different way of re-starting the PC like pressing keys during the start-up process,
which may cancel the Wizard in the process.?
