Reducing Power Consumption with Windows 7’s Power Manag

Quote:
Microsoft’s Environmental Sustainability Blog has posted an excellent blog post today highlighting Windows 7’s Power Management features. These features can help our customers be much more energy efficient. Windows 7 has a strong focus on reducing the overall power consumption which can enable companies to be able to further reduce their operational costs as well as their carbon footprint. I recommend giving the blog post a read to understand how Windows 7 will help people consume less power. Windows 7 is a great example of a product designed to minimize environmental impact.

You can also read this whitepaper (PDF) on Windows 7 Power Management too which is also highly recommended!

Reducing Windows 7's Memory Consumption
Hello, I'm not much of a techno-hero, so I don't know a terrible lot about the inner-workings of computers, but I do have a question. My Presario CQ62-214NR came packaged with 2GB of RAM. When I began installing games on it, I discovered that Windows eats 3/4 of that memory for use with other...
