Does anyone know of a program (or a way in windows task scheduler) to run a program when a laptop goes on battery? And then another program when it comes off battery? For Vista, btw.
I really would like to be able to run my script that turns off Aero when my computer goes on battery- it's a significant power savings.
I know of a program called Vista Battery Saver which does something similar, but isn't acceptable. It turns off Aero, which is more severe than turning off transparency. Turning off Aero is overkill and doesn't seem to make much difference on battery life, so I really just want a way to turn off transparency. It seems the most flexible way to do this would be to have a method for running programs when the computer detects that it has changed to battery and then when it goes back on AC.
Thanks for any ideas/etc...
