  • Patent number: 8103895
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an information processing apparatus includes devices including functions of generating wake-up signals, a controller which returns the apparatus to the power-on status in response to wake-up signals, and a first nonvolatile memory which stores information indicating whether the functions are enabled. The devices initializes such that the function is enabled if the information of the first nonvolatile memory has indicated that the function has been enabled when the power supply is started. The controller includes a second nonvolatile memory which stores information indicating devices to which power should be continuously supplied in the power-off status. The controller starts the power supply to the devices indicated that the power supply should be continued by the information of the second nonvolatile memory when the power supply is started, and continues the power supply in the power-off status to devices indicated that the power supply should be continued.
