Show all three power plans in system tray in Windows 7

By matanol ·
As you probably know, Windows Vista showed all 3 power plans in the system tray - Power Saver, Balanced and High Performance. For some reason, one option was removed from Windows 7, and the work became very uncomfortable. I found a good solution to show all three power plans in the tray again - Total Power Control. Besides standard power plans, it can be configured to show custom user-created plans. If someone has the same difficulty, you can download TPC here: . The tool also provides eays ways to shutdown, restart, hibernate, sleep computer, turn off screen and some other features.

I hate shareware It's a shame to pay $14 for this thing.
I use a free yet elegant Power Plan Assistant application instead (
It's licensing scheme is much more friendly: you can use it without charge for everlasting period of time. Just download a new build when the previous one expired. Or donate ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY to get registered. I preferred to donate $10 instead of paying $14. Why 10 and not 5 or less? Just because authors of Power Plan Assistant are playing fair - they let me decide how much to donate. Yeah, fair play worth the appreciation. Additionally, the application is beautiful and elegant. Kudos to creators of Power Plan Assistant for Windows 7!
