The purpose of this document is to provide energy efficient software guidelines extending the items described in the “Energy-Efficient Software Checklist” document. The guidelines are OS and architecture agnostic except where otherwise noted.
This paper discusses the concept of power management issues in a mobile situation, and describes how application software can improve user experience and extend battery life.
Intel engineer Girish Gopal includes steps for implementing application power management for mobility within an application, references to available Microsoft Windows* Power Management Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and an overview of the proof-of-concept application developed by Intel® software labs.
Mission and Objectives
In the consumer and business marketplaces, handheld – or small form factor – devices are proliferating. Smart phones, notebooks, and micro PCs are the leading edge of a wave of new small form factor devices designed for communication and entertainment.
As part of Intel’s vision of architecture innovation for convergence, the Intel Systems Technology Labs (STL) are working to accelerate these next-generation technologies and products.
