My question I hope is a simple one though I don't care to guess by trial and error. When Win. 7 "powers down" to make the world greener is it safe to detach peripherals without the normal permission?

Thanks

I wouldn't recommend it. Even while powering down, unplugging them could still corrupt your files or short out the ports in which they're plugged into. It seems like it would be a safer bet to just take a few seconds and disconnect them properly. It might save you a headache in the long run.

w7pro,
Thanks, I too feel it is worth taking the time though I did not know for sure how much juice is still on board in that state of readiness. I suppose as I write this response, I sort of realize there is some power available as it comes back on where I left off.
Thanks again.
