The Online World Never Sleeps

Your connection to it should not either

With Intel® Smart Connect Technology,1 stay current with automatic, no-wait updates to your e-mail, social networks, news, and more. While your system is in standby, it will periodically wake up to update the applications that are open. When you return to your system and open the lid, the latest content will be at your fingertips.

It also enables your computer to send updates to the cloud if you create items while you are away from a network connection—for example, if you write an e-mail while on a plane. This way, everyone has your latest thoughts and you always have the freshest data ready to go whenever you are.

Intel Smart Connect Technology is available on Ultrabook™, All-in-One, and standard PCs powered by the latest Intel® Core™ processor family.

How it works

While your computer is asleep, Intel Smart Connect Technology wakes the system periodically and re-establishes network connectivity. This enables your applications that receive data from the Internet—such as your e-mail and social network sites—to quickly sync with the cloud service and update your system. After the content is updated, the system automatically transitions back to sleep mode.
