Windows 7: Power Saver - Toshiba Satellite M40X

Power Saver - Toshiba Satellite M40X


I liked the Toshiba Power Saver that I had used for so long with my laptop, but after upgrading to W7-32b it does not work anymore... Most of the new utilities and drivers from Toshiba are specific for W7-64b.

I was wondering if a driver from a relatively new computer (32b based) would work fine in mine and, if it is worth a try, which one would be the most "similar" laptop to mine?

In case nothing works is there any other power management utility that you could recommend me?

hi fernandoc, if your laptop originally came with Vista, just reinstall the same drivers, but install them in Compatibility mode with Vista,

Unfortunately it is not that easy... My computer is around 4.5 years old so XP was the default OS. I'm thinking of changing to XP again...

There is no Win7 version so you can only use Win7's built-in power saver, with the add-ons installed from the Toshiba Value Added Package.
