Monitoring and optimizing power consumption are frequently important considerations when creating embedded devices. Before he left his role as a Program Manager on the Windows Embedded team for another job, Thomas Yong created a PowerToy to help you understand your device’s power usage that we are releasing today - Power Manager.
Power Manager is a tool designed for Windows Embedded Standard 7 to monitor power management status and to perform battery measurement for battery operated devices.Its primary goal is to ease the battery measurement process by providing automation, data logging, and integration of other power performance analysis tools.
You can download Power Manager,as well as a thorough user guide, at http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/powermgr/.
