Windows 7: Best webserver for php/html5 development on a laptop?

Best webserver for php/html5 development on a laptop?

I'm looking to install a lightweight webserver on my laptop to serve up php/html/javascript pages. I'm starting to script a bit more, and it would be sweet to test out pages without having to FTP them to my website.

Because this is a laptop, I'd like it to be lightweight, mostly to save battery life. I'd also like to be able to turn it on and off easily...

Any recommendations? I've been looking at YAWS, IIS, lighttpd, and apache.

Thanks!

That's better than anything I had hoped for. PHP, Apache, and MySQL, able to be used off a thumb drive, and turned on/off easily.

Thank you!

Anyone finding this thread in a search: Try the above. It's way better than acutally setting up a local development WAMP server (dekstop or laptop) with IIS, Apache, or LightHTTPD.
