Good for target audience, otherwise redundant 3 stars by SanctimoniousApe Nov 08, 2007 (Read all my 5 reviews)
Nothing here that can't be done better by using the control panel's "Power Options." If you've already done so, the program's memory (18MB) and processor usage can technically cause MORE energy waste. HOWEVER, for those who are not adept at (or couldn't be bothered with) doing the above it encourages power conservation by making a game out of it as well as giving hard numbers (even if only a vague guesstimate) to look at. While this may backfire by encouraging extremely competitive types to leave their PC on when they'd otherwise shut it off just so the program kicks in (it's not clear how "off" time is counted), overall it's more likely the positives will outweigh the negatives and therefore is better than no power tweaking at all. Other issues include a non-standard GUI and no "suspend" support, but Snapfiles doesn't provide enough review space (or formatting options) to talk about those, too. show Review details
