Today, I want to briefly chat about the two new power buttons that are located on the Start Orb of Windows Vista. The Power button when selected, puts your entire session in memory and puts your computer in a low power state (sleep mode). It takes a minimal amount of power.
I left one of my laptops in this mode for 3 days with a full battery (100%) and it was still at 90 percent 3 days later. On a Windows XP machine, Standby mode on the same laptop dies within 24 hours. I tested this by reimaging the same laptop with Windows XP.
