Monitor Energy Saver – Saving Energy is Easy
Monitor Energy Saver, is a little Google Code project that is so simple in its functionality it’s hard to believe it’s been overlooked for so long. MonitorES pays attention to when you lock your machine and it automatically turns off the monitor immediately following the lock sequence. This way, instead of waiting for the idle timer to kick in when you’re obviously not using the computer, the monitor turns off immediately and stops wasting electricity.
Alternatively, you could set the power saving options down really low to have the monitor power off after required time of being idle.
Monitor Energy Saver is the perfect simple solution to saving more power so easily. Beyond the power-saving, it also has some other features integrated into it. When you lock your machine, it will automatically pause all media players that is playing and set your IM status to ‘Away’.
