Cut your PC's electricity bill with this smart power management tool

SmartPower is an intelligent Windows service that will save energy - and money - by hibernating and resuming your PC according to the rules you specify.

You can set up schedules to define when your PC absolutely must be on. And as long as your hardware supports it (which almost all modern PCs will), your system will turn itself on at the defined time, ready to start work.

Outside of these schedules, SmartPower will try to close your PC down to save electricity. But this doesn't have to get in your way.

The program can monitor your network traffic, for instance - if you've left your system downloading something overnight, then SmartPower won't shut it down until you've finished.

Or maybe you have two or three PCs in your own home network? SmartPower can keep your PC awake as long as they're around, so they'll still be able to access network resources on your PC.

And there are several other rules you can apply to tune the program for your needs. SmartPower can force your PC to remain awake if a particular process is running, for instance; if another program is requesting display or system power; if other network devices are on, and more. It's all very flexible.

Version 1.6.0:
    •Added support for configuring SmartPower with Group Policy.
    •Changed inter-process communication method between idle monitor and service.


SmartPower is an excellent way to manage exactly when your PC should be running, and when it can safely be shut down

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
