Designed specifically for Windows 7, Power Plan Assistant boasts of unique battery features for Apple MacBooks running Windows 7 (through BootCamp). For everyone else, PPA will silently switch power plans when your laptop is plugged / unplugged.
Features of Power Plan Assistant
- Switch between the Windows built-in power plans (all power plans, including custom plans, not just 2 of them, as it is when operating via system Power icon);
- Easily observe which power plan is currently active (dynamic application icon in a taskbar notification area changes in accordance with an active power plan, does not matter where it has been changed – in a Control Panel, system Power icon or in the Power Plan Assistant itself);
- Instantly power off the display on user’s demand (why wait at least one minute for it to be powered off, wasting the energy?). The display can be waked up then by pressing any key or moving the cursor;
- Switch the power plans automatically.
