Thank you Brink.
Recently I inherited -sort of - 4 years old Asus eeePc 1001 netbook. The display connector has started giving problems on it and I don't feel like spending $ 120 to get it fixed. I have it connected to a 22" monitor. I tested it and it consumes maximum of 30 watts when charging and under 20 when the display if off. I am using it strictly for unattended http and torrent downloads at night. Without your fix it was defaulting to 1080p resolution and the text was practically impossible to read. Thanks to you now it is under control.
I have a usb connected power controller - from Energenie Netherlands - which powers off the charger when it reaches 90 % level and switches on again when it drops to 15 % through a command line utility. I am also using a batch file to check the level every 30 minutes. Next I will be testing it for actual power consumption (KWH)over the period.
Thank you once again.
