Method for power basis shift detection

Disclosed is a method for power basis shift detection. Benefits include improved power performance and improved performance.

Description

              The disclosed method is power basis shift detection (see Figure 1). The method monitors the system configuration via the device manager. The method also monitors the dominant workloads the user encounters, such as system idle and DVD and notes the power level via the smart battery.

              When drivers or software are loaded, the power level is compared to data stored from previous situations can be made to detect if a shift in the base power level has occurred.

              If a deviation threshold from the previous power level is crossed (+/-), an organization dedicated to power friendly drivers and software could be notified via the Internet. Software could also be included to resolve deviant programs and drivers as well.

Advantages

              The disclosed method provides advantages, including:

•             Improved power performance due to the usage of efficient programs and drivers as identified by monitoring

•             Improved performance due to the usage of efficient applications and devices as identified by monitoring
