Energy Star Settings for My Notebook
My Lenovo Thinkpad X200 Tablet PC is considered a "green machine." One of the power settings is labeled "Energy Star" and that's the setting I mainly use on this portable device. It puts the computer into Sleep Mode (or Standby) after 10 minutes of inactivity. The nice thing about Vista (and Windows 7) is that a laptop wil come out of Sleep/Standby very quickly. Therefore, it makes sense to have the PC go into a low power mode and save electricity (and the environment). If you're not using an energy-efficient power setting on your PC, then you should consider changing it so that you start saving some electricity. This planet has finite resources and we should all work together to preserve as much as we can for the next generation. Go Green!
