Windows 7 has very exiting features like Aero view and more rich GUIs. I will definitely enjoy these features if the laptop is connected to direct power but when I am in travel or away in a place where I don’t have power options, then I will give preference to battery backup.
Aerofoil is a tool developed to automatically off aero view and other UI power consuming settings when you are running on battery. It also enables you to choose/switch between power plans and configure your side bar too. It has quick hibernate button which takes your laptop to sleep.
Get a copy of this freeware and enjoy long hours of battery performance.
