Power Plan Assistant for Boot Camp-enabled Apple Macbook Pro / Air notebooks running Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 10

Power Plan Assistant is the world's smartest power management tool, created specifically for Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 10 and Macbook with an Apple Boot Camp.
It's an ultimate manual and automatic switcher of the power schemes with a compact yet very informative system Power icon replacement and many other goods.





With Power Plan Assistant you can...
~ Use all of the convenient power management features brought by Power Plan Assistant to any Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 10 powered computer, as following:

1.  Easily switch between the Windows built-in/custom power plans (all plans, not 2, as when operating via system Power icon) and instantly power off the display
on user's demand (why wait at least one minute for it to be powered off, wasting energy?). It can be waked up then by pressing any key or moving the cursor.

2.  Always observe which power plan is currently active (the dynamic Power Plan Assistant icon in the notification area of Windows taskbar changes in accordance
with an active power plan, does not matter where the plan was changed - in Control Panel, using system Power icon or Power Plan Assistant itself).
>>NEW<<  Now the notification are icon of the Power Plan Assistant can replace the system Power icon completely: it displays more information (battery level,
active power plan [via battery icon color], power source status [via battery icon cap]) and offers much higher precision than the system Power icon.

3.  Switch the power plans automatically to 'Power Saver' in order to start saving the energy before the battery power is gone (the threshold is user-configurable), 
to 'High Performance'  or  'Balanced'  (on plugging in), to 'Balanced' or 'Power Saver' (on unplugging).

4.  Instantly power off the display, lock the workstation, etc., without a need to perform even a single click: user-configurable action can trigger on placing a cursor
precisely at the top left corner of the screen (note: this is not available in Windows 8.x because it would conflict with Windows own usage of this 'hot corner').
~ Macbook family, unlike most other laptops available on the market, do not have a hardware Wi-Fi / Bluetooth toggle button. Power Plan Assistant offers you to turn
off / on the wireless adapters quickly and easily, directly from the 'left-click' actions menu. Since Windows 7 / 8 / 10, unlike macOS, always keeps the wireless devices
on (no true power off even if the device is not working / is not connected to network), this feature becomes real Boot Camp power saver. Now you can keep wireless
adapters on only when you actually need the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity.
~ Temporary disable keyboard backlight (to re-enable, you can simply change its level using the hardware keys: current backlight level is remembered on disabling and
restored on manual adjustment). Note: all of Boot Camp's features and hardware controls are still available when Power Plan Assistant is running!
~ Enable / disable Boot Camp-native automatic adjustment of the keyboard backlight intensity (see 'Manage Keyboard backlight' option in an Advanced Settings Menu).

The Power Plan Assistant is compatible with Boot Camp 3.0 to 6.1; it may not work with older Boot Camp versions. All existing generations of the Boot Camp-enabled
Apple Macbook Pro and Macbook Air notebooks are supported.
