Windows 7: power management

power management

Windows 7 has the full and basic aero themes that can be changed inside personalization. Windows used to automatically disable Windows Aero (transparency) when I unplug my laptop from the mains.
I reset the theme and now it doesn't do this anymore. I can't seem to find how to enable this again. I've checked the advanced power options and control panel but turning back on this feature is eluding me. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

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....:cry:

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.
