Notebook Hardware Control

Another free Windows tool. One of the biggest annoyances with notebooks is that the battery life is skimpy. Yes, you heard us right. Skimpy. The nice thing about having Notebook Hardware Control is that you can control everything from your power management schemes, to your CPU speed.
Requires .NET but heck, if you’re running a notebook, you should take whatever you can get.
