Strategies for conserving battery power

Here’s a great post from Microsoft At Work about using and conserving battery power on laptops. Step-by-step instructions are included for computers running Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP operating systems.    It also explains the difference between Sleep, Hibernate, and Standby modes, which can be confusing to the casual user (like me!).

With the recent adoption of so many laptops in this District’s elementary schools, this would be a helpful article for all grades 2-8 teachers to read.  (Note: all new Elementary laptops are running the Windows 7 operating system.)  Even if you don’t have access to laptops in your classroom, these tips are quite helpful for maximizing the use of our Laptop Labs.  A few of the tips are also relevant to conserving energy with your desktop workstation.
