This is a power setting I made for vista for my customers.
I have everything maxed out when running plugged in
and everything running on lowest settings when running on battery. This will work for both laptops and desktops with or without battery backups hooked up.
This also changes the button on the start menu to shutdown
the computer not put it into sleep.
If your not going to use your computer for a long period turn the dang thing off! save your power bill and the earth damn it :-P
I have made it easy to install. download the zip, extract it and run the install_power.bat file, it will install and set the new power settings. Enjoy!
