    "Helps with battery life, when it behaves"

    September 15, 2007   |   By percussiveness

    Version: Vista Battery Saver beta 2

    Pros

    It really does help with battery life, and it doesn't take up much hard drive space or memory. The little icon in the tray is unobtrusive, and the interface is intuitive and easy to use.

    Cons

    I plug in and unplug my laptop a lot, and it starts getting a little screwy after I do that too often. Some of the odd behaviors (which only happen on occasion):

    - Instead of hiding the sidebar, it eliminates that portion of the screen, and the rest of the screen stretches to fill in

    - It fails to re-activate Aero or the sidebar (or both) upon being plugged in

    - The sidebar disappears for a while, then reappears upon being unplugged or plugged in

    Again, these are occasional occurrences, but it happens enough to be annoying. I simply made a shortcut and only run the program when I'm on battery. The power savings are worth the effort. Hopefully they'll work out the bugs soon (it is beta, after all).

    "It doesn't work with Vista Home Premium."

    September 08, 2007   |   By botchogsky

    Version: Vista Battery Saver beta 2

    Pros

    It was a novel software to have, and it really does what it says it would. Plus the icon is cute.

    Cons

    I downloaded and ran this software when I had my laptop plugged without the battery. When I was running the computer solely on battery, it gave a prompt, saying that it does not work with Home Premium and that it would temporarily change to Home Basic until I terminated it. When I exited the program, my Vista reverted back to Home Premium.
