Excellent Power Management Reference

Dear passionate power management reader,

Doing an internet scan for material having to do with power management policy, my next blog series, I ran across a blog that I believe to be excellent. As many of you have discovered, I generally write at a pretty high level, though technical. I do this intentionally. At the beginning of my blogging career, there was not much written about power management that was comprehensible to a competent engineer who was not a power expert.

This excellent material I refer to is a series of blogs written by Alex Hung in his DMZ blogspot. See [HungA] below. Unlike my material, he digs into the actual nuts and bolts of power management at kernel and BIOS levels. His blogs cover much more than just power management, so you will have to dig through them a bit to find those focusing on power management.

Oh, and I should mention that the earlier blogs are written in Chinese. For those, such as myself, who are not well versed in the very important technical languages of Asia, I recommend a good webpage translation program. I use microsofttranslator.com but any other translator should do the job.
