You shouldn't have to configure them by hand.  Call your Dell sales rep and
ask him to find out or get you in touch with DCS to help you configure
this.  I know they have a tool called setupbios that they use to configure
bios features, including power management.  AFAIK, it's not publicly
available and you have to ask them for it and how to use it.  The tool
doesn't have any internal help documentation.
