Energy Dimmer 2.14

Energy Dimmer Publisher's Description

PalmOS devices with colour screens consume a lot of energy and therefore they won't usually run as long as devices with a monochrome screen. On devices that allow to change the brightness, you can reduce the energy consumption by using a lower brightness.

Energy Dimmer aims at helping you to save energy, increasing the time your colour device will run without a charge or battery change. To accomplish this it offers you to define as many profiles as you want and each profile contains the following settings:

  • auto-off value (adjustable in the range of seconds including "never auto-off")
  • brightness of the screen (different situations require different brightness levels)
  • dimming - allows you to define after how many seconds of inactivity your screen brightness should drop

Using Energy Dimmer you can

  • use a much higher auto-off value without consuming more power
  • work much more efficiently - especially in meetings Energy Dimmer will soon be an important tool for you (don't let your device power- off but let it just dim the screen and with just a tap or a key press you can continue to work at full brightness without needing to press the power button and wait for the screen to return to full brightness)
  • use profiles to customize the energy saving behaviour of your device depending on the current situation (office - meeting - car - train - home - ...)

Important notice: On some devices Energy Dimmer allows to dim the brightness below what the device's own brightness slider offers. This is the case if the device's brightness slider does not make use of the full range of brightness values that the PalmOS-interface allows for. Devices where this happen are most notably the Tungsten T, T2 and E as well as the Zire 71.

On newer devices like the T5, LifeDrive, E2 and Zire 72, you can not achieve this side-effect of dimming lower than originally possible by using Energy Dimmer. Please keep in mind that it is not the task of Energy Dimmer to do that. If you really need this feature, you could try out an application called Brightness Fix that accesses the hardware directly to extend the range of brightness. Energy Dimmer will be able to make use of this new range. Do note, though, that we do not endorse this direct access, and you will use this on your own risk. Energy Dimmer itself will continue to only use the OS provided capabilities.

The trial version of Energy Dimmer will run for 21 days without any limitation. Please read the enclosed manual for more details.
