Planning for netbooks (Laptops4Learning) we are always on the look out to make this personal learning tools more efficient. The unit, the OS and battery life are the foundations for all decisions. Introducing a simple visual battery display that is not intrusive BattCursor.
BattCursor lets you define the values of the mouse cursor battery power, for example, low battery level as yellow and a critical as red. Simple but informative.
BattCursor has other functions to increase battery life, including dimming down the screen and switching to a ‘conservation power mode’ when battery power is low. This might be just enough time to find a recharging unit before a student or teacher remembers to save their work.
We will have to test it out and let you know.
