    S1/S3 more intelligent standby

    I'm starting to use S3 standby instead of turning the PC of
    it only increases the power draw from 7 to 12 watt.


    now i wish to be able to leave my computer and have it auto standby itself.
    but not brutality like windows does.
    i want it to check if I'm actually done using the computer. That its that what ever i set to computer to do is finished.

    so basically i want it to test if cpu usage and disk/network I/O is low before going into standby.

    its there a bright head in here who cold make that tool. or direct my to one?

    Cpuidle supports S1 but isn't upto date with regards to recent processors so no S3 support afaik. I get a 10?C drop in CPU temp using S1 on my Athlon XP, but i think my trial of Cpuidle is due to run out soon

    Edit: Oh, woops i think you are talking about something totally different?

    I remember that 6.0 used ancient method of storing instalation date - it just checked date of file cpuidle.exe. Try setting it to, say, 1.1.2009.

    There are several states, according to cpuidle anyways, S1 & C2, as well as the OS controlled one.
