Windows Server 2008 R2 (i.e. "Windows 7 Server") introduces significant advancements in Server Power Management capabilities. You may never win a Nobel prize for building an application that plays well with Server Power Management policies nor by configuring a power-optimized data-center, but you'll gain lots of respect for returning real green cash savings for your customers. We think that makes lots of of sense for both Developers and IT Professionals.

    A compelling argument and i would like to ask how significant is the issue of processor load vs efficiency loss due to heating if the load from other processors is relaxed by switching them off, shifting the combined loads onto the one processor, and have you investigated what point of processor usage will be optimal to change the mode of operation and redistribute the loading to achieve best performance vs energy consumption? It is a good step ahead to manage power loading, and any step towards that is a good step, especially since that step comes from the programming of how the equipment is used, but i would imagine that a phillips screw driver no matter how well it is handled by a master would not be very efficient in turning a regular screw, the energy question needs to be solved at the hardware end, however the tools you provide will help to establish a baseline for how badly we had run things from a futuristic perspective.
