Power Management?

What sorts of things can I do for power management, or is there any freeware/cheap software out there for this?? I cannot get my Sony Utilities installed, which means I no longer have Sony power management....

Yes, but that only changes display (on/off), disk (on/off) and screen brightness...I need something with "power saver mode," that'll limit the computers performance. Or are those the only things Sony Utilities modified?

Hello Awenthol,

I'm not sure what all you are wanting to control or what programs may allow this, but you can also usually set performance settings in the BIOS as well. Do this only if you are comfortable in the BIOS though.

In Power Options, you can set limits on your processor performance state as well.

Power management not working?
I have Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (Retail) installed on my desktop at home. So far I love it. I ran the RC prior to this and found it much, much better than I had expected. Anyway, for some reason my computer is not suspending itself any more. It worked fine for the first week, turning "off"...

Power Management Utility?
Does anyone know of a quick way to change between power management schemes? For a desktop setup - I'm thinking of a utility that sits in the taskbar that allows you to quickly change schemes.
