SmartPower Review

Sven Sorensen
Saves energy by putting your computer to sleep (configurable)
A review of SmartPower by Sven Sørensen

SmartPower is a small and effective little application which helps your laptop save its power reserves. It does this by automatically putting it into hibernation mode in case there hasn't been activity.

Everything about this program can be customized. Whether or not you want to set your computer to hibernate (or sleep) after one minute or whether it is a longer period, you can customize it.

Another thing about SmartPower is its grace timer which gives you a default 5 minutes to know before your computer is scheduled to sleep.

Overall, SmartPower is a well thought-out utility which comes in handy for users who like to save power or even for those on a desktop who often forget to shut down.

SmartPower features and highlights:
  • One or more schedules are active – a schedule is a period of time during which the PC must stay on.
  • There has been recent user activity – user activity means that one or more users have been using the mouse or keyboard
  • One or more devices are online – a device is anything on your network that will respond to a ping
  • Network traffic on one or more network interfaces is above a configurable threshold
  • CPU usage is above a configurable threshold
  • One or more processes are running - a process is a Windows process
  • One or more programs have requested "display power", "system power" or "away mode"

SmartPower is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from computer utilities without restrictions. SmartPower 1.6.0 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
