Power Plan Assistant for Windows 7 is an application that can redefine the Windows 7 laptop experience. Power Plan Assistant works with any Windows 7-compatible hardware, both the 32-bit and 64-bit. This tool will also let you install the features, unique to boot camp-enabled Apple Macbook Pro / Air notebooks when running Windows 7. The application is able to manage, automatically as well as manually by the user, power plans of the computer for optimum consumption. It lets you switch between the Windows built-in and custom power plans. Thus you not only have access to three system provided power plans but also additional plans provided by this application. With so many plans available, it can get confusing about which plan is active at any time. The tool makes it easy to check.
The dynamic application`s icon in the taskbar notification area is used to indicate the active power plan. This icon changes with an active power plan in effect. User may choose between the three types of the dynamic notification area icon in taskbar. One of the available icons, can replace the system icon and yet provide more information such as battery level, active power plan, and power source. The indications also display a higher precision than the system icon. This icon keeps track of the plan. It does not matter where the plans were switched. The power could have been changed through Control Panel, through the system Power icon or in the Power Plan Assistant itself, etc. The tool will also run a user-defined application or a batch file if power plan changes. Settings for each power plan are available. This is a very effective tool for managing power usage in your system.
