Laptops energy consumption: save or not


Here we'll try to answer: Is there is any use to listen loud music and watch films.

The time of the unmanaged mode of the mobile computer when sound is turned off and music is reproduced

Notice that so simple operation as music reproduction needs energy consumption but a little.

The time of the unmanaged mode of the mobile computer when music is reproduced throght laptop speakers and headphones

The time of the unmanaged mode of the mobile computer when sound is turned on through the acoustic system or through the headphones and music is reproduced.

Headphones don't consume a lot of energy as it was supposed. But built in acoustic system consumes more energy. And if you like listen music or to watch films from laptop you need to buy headphones.


So now let's see how is it possible to save more energy when laptop operates with accumulator? Not to turn it on! But in some time the accumulator will discharge, but it will very slowly...

But if seriously, it is possible to recommend minimizing the display brightness. The sound influences the energy consumption a little, but it is better to use headphones. Switched on but used rarely, for example for Internet, Wi-Fi doesn't consume a lot of energy. But a browser with a lot of pages and pictures will increase the consumption.

Operations with optical drive are forbidden. Do you like to watch a film? Copy it to hard disk and watch it from that directory. You save more energy. But it was pleasant to see that saving to disk or from disk consumes almost the same amount of energy as reading. And it is interesting that DVD usage saves more energy than CD usage.

To play games is not recommended if you want to save the accumulator charge. The accumulator will discharge for some tens of minutes. Also USB usage is not the best way to save the energy. Don't forget that energy for the device is supplied with USB and these are precious minutes.

We believe all information in this article will be useful for you. You need not to follow the advices surely but for it foundation it is possible to build the best strategy to save laptop energy in special situation.

Yep! I find what you're saying to be true, at least in the mjtroiay of cases. Considering the years of research and developement, not to mention huge wads of cash, gone into developing both the hardware and the code to control it, some things are better left in-house. And I serioulsly doubt that your coffe would taste any better should your microwave oven run Linux. Nevertheless the call for free code has never been louder than it is today, arguably voices were louder in the sixties, but that was for free love / drugs / whatever, they did not care about code back then, that was military stuff. And, yes, the free code has not only a niche to fill but also a market, these are though largely concerned with exstensions to available technology. How about interfacing your server farm to a display system? Your RAID array to your printer? Hell, how about connecting your toaster to the coffee machine, and the fridge, and to your alarm clock for a timed, ready to eat brekfast?The point is that there is great benefit to be found in leaving your options open, now this may not necessarily mean open code but at least developing coherent standards. Cue the magic teenagers. As long as they have handles to grab they may yet be able to have your breakfast ready the minute you're human enough get out of bed, but leaving your code open is like telleing the world Hey! Put me out of business will ya! .No seriously, I believe that the call for open code for systems, best developed in-house with complete documentation of the involved technologies is a cry from a generation with hubris, not to mention used to getting the way they want whenever they want it . Bloody communists , some may say. Well, I'm inclined to agree. If you find the technology to be inferior you'd be better off calling in some hardware professionals (if you're not one of those as well), develop the product, insert your own code, and pretty soon you'll be running to the patent office and fighting neverending court battles to retain your livelihood. You see, now you're like that corporation you wanted to open their code for you, and you're afraid of competitors buying some other teen's knowledge to throw you out of business.Well here's a tip. Let your hobby stay a hobby. If you're confident enough that your solution is better, go into business and prove that it is.And if your proof is good enough I may one day wake up to a set breakfast without having to hire a Polish maid.Oh yeah, I'd probably still be late for work

Could you coseidnr putting your book trailers on teacher tube and some of the other book trailer sites? Most schools block youtube and so we can't use the trailers with the kids or linked to our book blogs.
