Edison is a free software that makes it easy for people to schedule when a PC goes into a low power consumption mode at home or at work. The Edison software doesn’t completely shut a computer off but rather moves it to a "suspend" state, which uses less energy. Users can also schedule to shut down the screen and hard drive before going into suspend mode. This displays how much electricity you are saving, also translated into reductions in carbon dioxide emissions and dollar savings.
Edison is easy to use, download and install. It enables you to manage your PC’s power usage, save on energy costs, and help preserve the environment.
