DVD playback in Laptop PC

By timbuc ·
Acer laptop,WinXPSP2, Celeron CPU with 1GB ram.
using WinDVD to play DVD

I notice when a DVD is paused that the disc stops spinning after qbout 10 seconds. Play only resumes after a delay and some stuttering. What can I change to ensure a smooth transition from Pause to Play. I have experimented with different hardware acceleration values and different performance settings to no avail.
Many thanks for any ideas.

check power management

that might have a setting for drives being shut down after so long.

also, you might be able to configure it with driver/control app software. check with your drive/laptop vendor.
