Reducing Power Consumption with Windows 7’s Power Manag

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!
