Windows 7 was released a couple of months ago with a whole bunch of new features. Unfortunately, the power management leaves a lot to be desired.
Power Plan Assistant 7 is a small tool for managing power consumption on Windows 7.
Powerplan has a dynamic system tray icon that changes depending on the powersaving mode that has been set.
- Switch between power saving modes by just clicking the system tray icon
- Switch to the Windows power-saving modes, too
- Everything, right down to the pop up balloons in the system tray is user-configurable
- Switch of the monitor immediately, instead of having to wait for it to go idle
