A Windows® 7 Feature – Power Management
The word on conserving energy and making the earth green is the buzz everywhere these days. There are valiant efforts from everyone to channelize this idea to reduce energy costs. There are a lot of factors in a computer that pile up energy costs. Hard drive operations, CPU, monitors, and a lot of external drives attached to a computer can consume a lot of energy.
Windows 7 takes good note of this and tries to keep energy costs as minimal as possible. There are a number of ways to attain this goal but an effort is needed from the user as well to pay heed to the following suggestions and improvisations tabled in Windows 7.
One way of contributing to energy efficiency is to maximize when a computer is idle and reducing the utilization of the system. This can also be enabled by the hardware when it is made to pass through a lower power state when it is undergoing an extended period of inactivity. If one eliminates the background activity on the system, the result is even greater.
Windows 7 also has a trigger starting mechanism with the function to start a background service only when demanded. The PPM or Power Management in Windows 7 is enabled by a driver support. This technology gives the liberty to the Operating System to earmark the right processor performance on a look at the load and then goes on to adjust the power consumption. The Time coalescing feature is also an important element in power saving. It is a mechanism to manage idle time by allowing the kernel to in a timer interruption by combining the software timer expiration. The Network Card and optical (which are video components) are also well-built technologies in Windows 7 which can give one the option of low power modes.
