Vista Battery Saver Goes Open-source

by Tris Hussey on July 28th, 2007

I talked about the Vista Battery Saver tool in May when it was first launched in beta.  I tried it for a little while, but I think something about my machine didn’t like it.  Doesn’t really matter though, because everyone else liked it so much so that it’s been release as an open-source app:

Project Description
This tinny program will save up to 70% of your battery by disabling those nice, but greedy Vista features. Running in task bar with private workset of 5.5M and 0% CPU it will do all work for you, by enabling and disabling customizable features when power source changed or battery power fall under certain percent.

Funny that my recent problems with Vista and my laptop have to do with power issues.  This application looks like it has matured a great deal since I looked at it, when I get my machine back, I’ll give it another try…
