engineers are putting a number of new power management features into Windows 7 that are designed to help IT administrators reduce power consumption and cost while improving the user experience.




Some of the new features also are designed to give IT professionals more control and flexibility over management of the energy-efficiency capabilities of Windows 7 OS systems. The new features build off of the more than 30 power management enhancements in Microsoft made in Windows Vista, according to officials.

Microsoft is ramping up the power management capabilities in the upcoming Windows 7 operating system with features designed to make it easier for IT administrators to help their companies save money while enhancing the user experience.

Some of the features build on what Microsoft put into Windows Vista, while others are new capabilities unique to Windows 7. However, all are aimed at enabling businesses to reduce the amount of power they consume and pay for.

"[Energy management] has been a key criteria for customers," Francois Ajenstat, Microsoft's director of environmental sustainability, said in an interview. "They want to save energy, they want to save the environment and they want to reduce their carbon footprint."
