Power Management for Win XP for Laptops


Recommended Posts

In this lab you will create a simple application that displays the power source of the computer and battery information. The application then uses this information to adjust its functionality. In Exercise 1 you will write the code to discover information about the current power source. In Exercise 2 you will build a notification event that will be raised when the power source changes. In Exercise 3 you will add a class that adjusts its behavior based on the current power source. Exercise 4 extends the solution further by showing you how to prevent the system from shutting the screen down if the application is using it. All sample code is in C#.

For all the info and download look here

Normal P4 proccessors have no power management features to make them run in lower clockrates. Don't know if there is a trick or something. But you can make your graphics card work slower if you have a nVidia or Ati card through their control panels.
