  • Patent number: 11561598
    Abstract: A power supply system includes circuitry that controls transition of an operation mode of the information processing apparatus from a first mode to a second mode in response to reception of user operation for transitioning to the second mode, the second mode being a mode in which electric power supplied to the information processing apparatus is less than that of the first mode, determines whether to release the second mode based on a detection result of a sensor that detects presence of a human, to output a first determination result, determines whether a first condition relating to the user operation is satisfied, to output a second determination result, and determines, based on the second determination result indicating that the first condition is satisfied, whether to allow releasing of the second mode based on the first determination result indicating that no human is detected.
