Windows 7: change resolution automatically when on battery

change resolution automatically when on battery

Is there some way that I can get my computer to automatically change the resolution to the lowest setting when I switch to DC power? I have already taken just about every step possible to increase battery power, but to really see improvements, I need to change the resolution to the 800x600 setting. Is there some background program that can do that for me when I switch to battery power?

Changing resolution isn't going to buy you any extra battery life.

How would that not increase battery life. You are making the GPU render fewer pixels, thus decreasing the workload. Am I right?
