Reviews for this release

Works great even on Windows Server '08 which normally took about 1.5 hours to drain my battery now lasts ~2 hours. I think there may be some problems when docking / undocking while the application is running, as it's crashed my machine, but good none the less.

Simple, unintrusive and easy to install. Unfortunately, it still only gave me about 100-120 minutes of battery time, but it's an improvement over the Vista default!
