GNOME Power Manager 2.19.1
Posted on: 05/03/2007 10:08 PM

GNOME Power Manager is a session daemon that makes it easy to manage the power on your laptop or desktop system.

Yes, I'm late. I know. I'm right in the middle of my University finals, so that's excuse enough I think.

This _unstable_ release contains lots of crazy new code since 2.18.0 was released. WARNING, this code may impregnate your cat and _will_ steal all of the magazines from the bathroom.

In particular, this release has enabled by default the new profiling code, so even if your laptop battery or UPS is old and broken, you'll still get a 99% perfect time remaining all throughout your discharge and charge cycle. Hopefully.

Downside, g-p-m has to profile your battery, so for the first couple of charge/discharge cycles the time remaining will be either missing or roughly guessed. Luckily it does all this profiling in the background, so just use your computer like normal.

Please send feedback to the gnome-power-manager-list_at_gnome_dot_org mailing list, where you can send flames or encouragement.

Please test this new feature, I really want to switch it on by default for 2.20.

Thanks.

Richard.
