WINSLEEP by MollieSoft keeps your computer asleep (while not too busy) as much as possible during periods you specify.
** Runs on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
** Provides a detailed time-line graph showing when your computer was awake, asleep, or hibernating.
** Sleep Journal shows when/why your computer woke up or went to sleep.
** Provides convenient Sleep and Hibernate buttons for manual use when desired.
** Use remote viewer WinSleep Monitor to connect from anywhere!
** Shows the current CPU/Disk/Network usage percentages for your computer.
** Define multiple sleep schedules (daily, weekly, or monthly time slot), each with a designated sleep policy with its own CPU/Disk/Network usage limits.
** Set wake schedules and an optional task (program) to be run at each wake.
** Helps prolong the life of your desktop computer. Your disk drive is not spinning, a motherboard is not powered, the fan is not running (and accumulating dust inside the computer casing), and your monitors are in standby mode.
** Saves money! A typical desktop uses 250 watts of electricity when awake, but only a few watts while asleep. Power companies (in the US) may bill at say 10 cents per kWH. This is .25 kWH @ 10 cents = 2.5 cents/hr you are saving while asleep. Say WinSleep sleeps your computer for half the day; this is $.30/day = $109.50 per year. The more you sleep, the more you save. (We didn't even count the power consumption of the computer monitor here.)
