For home users, you want a machine that is awake and ready to go when you are. You may use your home machine for a few hours in the morning, before you leave for work/your day's activities, and for a few hours in the evening, after dinner and before bed. SetPower allows you to schedule your power consumption around your needs. This saves energy and money. It's important to note, too, that SetPower will not preclude you from using your machine at any time. For instance, you might want to jump on your home machine on your day off. Even if you have SetPower scheduled to put your machine to "sleep" during the day, you can easily override SetPower by simply moving your mouse. It really is that easy.
And it's free! SetPower Free allows you to configure your PC with a Power Schedule that fits your needs. Just do us a favor...tell your IT people about it at work!
