I am resizing the partitions on the Hard Drive on a Desktop PC.
(using the "MiniTool Partition Wizard").
The PC and monitor shuts down after 20 min. during the partitioning process.
After restarting the PC, the monitor-screen displays (in real time) the partitioning process and the progress of the partitioning, for only 20 min duration and then it shuts down again.(PC and Monitor, both)
No Desktop is visible. No keys are functioning.
The wizard starts to re-run at every re-start , until the PC stops after 20 min.
After the PC stopped, there was no Power, 5Volt DC or 15V at the terminals.
Can the 5 and 12 Volts be supplied at the terminals to keep the Hard-Drive and PC-Board running?
Is that possible, maintaining the power at the terminals?
Until the Wizard has completed the process?
I am thinking here about an Electrical /Electronic Solution, I am in that profession..
Can the wizard be cancelled, or stopped ?
Can the 20 min shut-down time be disabled?
Can the Power-Saving setting be changed ?
I was unaware before and only concluded now, after the shut down happened,
that a shut down time for the PC being idle, may have been set to 20min, in the "Power Saving"-Setting.
I started the "Resize Wizard", not knowing that the PC will stop after 20 min run time.
Now the PC shuts down and the Wizard has not completed the resizing in that 20 min time frame.
Are there short-cuts available, may be at start up, to stop the process, or re-boot the PC ?
