Power Plan Assistant for Windows® 7 & 8 - Features and Benefits
The Power Plan Assistant is the world's smartest power management tool, created specifically for Microsoft® Windows® 7 / 8 operating systems family.
It's an ultimate manual / automatic power plan switcher with a compact yet very informative system Power icon replacement (option) and lots of other goods.

With Power Plan Assistant you can:
1.  Easily switch between the Windows® built-in/custom power plans (all plans, not 2, as when operating via system Power icon) and instantly power off the display
on user's demand (why wait at least one minute for it to be powered off, wasting energy?). It can be waked up then by pressing any key or moving the cursor;

2.  Always observe which power plan is currently active (as shown on the screenshots above, the dynamic application's icon in a taskbar notification area changes in
accordance with an active power plan, does not matter where the plan was changed - in Control Panel, using system Power icon or Power Plan Assistant itself);
>>NEW<<  Now users are allowed to choose between the 3 different types of the notification area icon in taskbar! One of the available icons can replace the
system Power icon completely: it displays more information (battery level, active power plan, power source) and offers much higher precision than the system icon.
NOTE: starting from the version 3.0a, a single power icon is available again (the "ex-3rd" icon, chosen by users to be the clearest yet the most informative one).

                

3.  Switch the power plans automatically: to 'Power Saver' in order to start saving the energy before the battery power is gone (the threshold is user-configurable), 
to 'High Performance'  or  'Balanced'  (on plugging in), to 'Balanced' or 'Power Saver' (on unplugging).

4.  >>NEW<<  Instantly power off the display, lock workstation or toggle Windows® 'Flip 3D' mode without a need to perform even a single click: user-configurable
action can fire on placing the cursor precisely at the top left corner of the screen (this feature is for Windows® 7 only).

5.  >>NEW<<  Run the user-defined application or a batch file if power plan changes (individual setting per each power plan is available). This enriches Power Plan
Assistant with virtually infinite capabilities: for example, you can tie your favorite overclocking software preset to an active power plan, turn off specific devices, etc.


As shown on a screenshot above, every feature of Power Plan Assistant is user-configurable, i.e. user can enable or disable it, either permanently or for the current
session only. Even the balloon messages and the notification icon appearance / behavior can be customized. When application is started, please refer to 'left-click'
actions menu and 'right-click' settings menu, where you can view / modify all the available settings.
