Low Power Features

2.1

Clock Control and Low Power States

The Pentium M processor supports the AutoHALT Power-Down, Stop Grant, Sleep, Deep Sleep,
and Deeper Sleep states for optimal power management. See
of the processor low-power states.

Normal State

This is the normal operating state for the processor.
2.1.2

AutoHALT Power-Down State

AutoHALT Power-Down is a low-power state entered when the processor executes the HALT
instruction. The processor will transition to the Normal state upon the occurrence of SMI#, INIT#,
LINT[1:0] (NMI, INTR), or FSB interrupt message. RESET# will cause the processor to
immediately initialize itself.
A system management interrupt (SMI) handler will return execution to either Normal state or the
AutoHALT Power-Down state. See the IA-32 Intel
Volume 3: System Programmer's Guide for more information.
