Energy Saving Software:

Although power management software has been around for years, there's clearly room for improvement, particularly with rising energy prices and environmental awareness.

The software that makes it easy for people to schedule when a PC goes into a low power consumption mode at home or at work.
PCs can consume as much as 10 percent of a home's energy bill and give off as much carbon dioxide as a family car. Even when a PC's screen saver kicks on, the machine can still consume between 100 watts and 250 watts.

We thought that the software doesn't completely shut a computer off but rather moves it to a "suspend" state, which uses less energy. Users can also schedule to shut down the screen and hard drive before going into suspend mode.

**just noticed this problem is just like Mijares and co. proposal.. huhuhu

In this software, the user can schedule how many hours, on what days of the week he will use the computer.
There is also a function that allows the user to customize on how many minutes will the computer turn off the display after it detects that it is not being used. And also customized what time or how many hours and minutes will the computer be of use until the computer is suspended or when the hard drive is powered down.

Practically this is to be used for companies who are likely to leave computers turned on for a ling period of time even when they are not using it.

This is highly ambitious since we are not really good in programming haha
