Thanks for the reply. I need to give you more information :-)
In this particular use-case, in this setting, on all of the XO's, both
power saving check-boxes are turned off. The screen may dim if someone
walks away for a while, but the machines never suspend, nor do the students
want them too. They are used performing measurements and transmitting the
results, until they run out of battery. The question really is: would we
have any better network performance or gain any more time with better power
conservation if mesh was completely disabled. And, if so, does that
little command above perform that completely.
