This is the second in a series of Screencasts I have recently completed. This one deals with the Windows Vista Power Plans and the ease with which you can change and customize them. I can say for a fact they work too. I usually run on the High Performance plan and I can just make it through a 2.5 hour movie on the plane in that config using my Lenovo T60p on a full charge. Switching to Power Saver gives me a full 45-60 minutes more time after the movie. Sweetness.
I will be posting a few more screencasts immediately after this one. For those interested, I used TechSmith's Camtasia to capture the screen demos. Slick product.
