Save laptop power with Eco Utility, a power saving application designed by Toshiba to encourage better energy efficient usage. Accessed via the Windows taskbar, once activated you can monitor and begin saving power consumption immediately.
A power consumption chart can be displayed to show the increase and decrease of power consumption when the Eco Mode is active. The utility is designed to offer a graphic view of consumption while using the laptop, as well as a historical record of consumption which can display both power consumption (displayed in WH) and CO2 emissions (displayed in kg). Eco Utility allows the user to work in a power-saving Eco Power Plan.
Once Eco mode is activated, the system works accordingly to set parameters, such as automatically dimming the display brightness, disabling LED and keyboard backlighting, and reducing the time before activating the hard drive sleep mode.
