AutoPowerOptionsOK is a free power management app that enables you to increase energy efficiency by providing quick access to customize monitor shutdown, the sleep timer, as well as toggling between energy plans at pre-determined times.
Once you run the app, you are presented with a simple interface that displays the available options; turn off the monitor, put the computer into sleep mode and auto power options switch. Utilizing these options is meant to help when your machine, for whatever reason, isn't detecting keyboard or mouse events for a period. So, if there is no activity, your machine will auto-switch to an alternate power plan. The ability to customize your options can be an invaluable way to save on energy consumption.
As a bonus, AutoPowerOptionsOK also gives you quick access to commonly-used system info tools like the task manager, system information, MSConfig among a few others. It is easy-to-use and set up and will be of use from everyone from network admins, to the home user that would like to manage their energy consumption more efficiently.
