Power Down Delay
This setting adjusts the time it takes for the brick to automatically power down. The ROBOTC preference is set to "Do Not Update" by default, which means ROBOTC will not override the setting you've manually set via the NXT's on-brick interface.

First Choice: Connect to Any NXT Connected via USB
Checking this box allows ROBOTC to communicate with any NXT brick that's connected to the computer with the USB cable.

Second Choice: Connect to Last NXT that was Connected
If an NXT isn't found (A brick isn't connected via USB to the computer) then ROBOTC will attempt to connect to the previous NXT by USB, and then the previous Bluetooth contact by default.
You can set ROBOTC to only connect via USB, or not check for the previous NXT.

Third Choice: Check other Possible Connections
If the previous NXT isn't found, then ROBOTC will again attempt to just find any NXT connect to the computer through USB or Bluetooth.
You can also set it to check again for any NXTs connected through Bluetooth, perform a manual selection, or not check again for another connection.
