    It makes your selections, well, the default for the computer.

    Thanks for the explanation, but I still do not understand the concept of making the settings default for the computer.
    • Does this mean that I'm forcing these settings for other users of the computer (i.e. other users settings are overruled)?
    • Or, does it mean that my computer will always reset these settings to the defaults after the rebooting (i.e. my changes of these settings will always be overruled)?
    • Or, maybe I'm not even close to guessing what it does?


    Could you explain, in more detail, what default in this case means/does?

    The options you select are used for each reboot. What ever options you select, will be the new default, for all users I believe.

    Thanks for the explanation!

    So if I understood correctly: At each reboot, for all users, the power management settings will be restored to the specified default setting.
