    This application easily switches PowerMizer off and on, I made it based on the tutorial here :
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=261929 (thanks to kenside34)

    If you don't know what PowermMizer is, you might be familiar with it's effect

    Now what is PowerMizer :


    This might be handy, saving you more battery life ... but at the same time it downclocks your GPU .. so u might feel that gaming on battery is alot slower than on A/C .. if you want to play games on the go, this is the application for you ...

    Note: this app only changes some registry values and is completely reversible and safe, if you don't want it just choose "PowerMizer on" .. and restart

    I am not responsible for any damages caused by the use of this application .. use at your own risk ..

    Download v1.2: http://www.box.net/shared/v7jpoateoq

    Hope you enjoy it .. this app is tested on XP, Vista, Windows7 and working 100%

    Knows issues:
    - Does not work with UAC turned on. Solution: Rightclick & "Run as Administrator"
    - Nothing seems to change. Solution: Restart

    Doesn't Vista already do this through its power plans? Keep the computer on performance mode and it won't downclock the GPU on battery? :confused:

    No, it doesn't on my notebook. And additionally I have read many posts confirming that.
    You can try and see yourself with GPU-Z. It monitors the clock rate and temperature.
