Granola is an intelligent software power management solution for x86 servers, laptops, and PCs running Linux and Microsoft Windows. Granola automatically optimizes a system to use energy more efficiently without compromising performance or availability. The Granola Power Management Daemon (see below) when installed on a server, laptop, or PC, matches the energy consumed by the system to the load on the system automatically. Granola typically lowers total system energy use by 10-35% even when a system is 100% utilized. Granola also tracks the energy saved for use in estimating cost savings and carbon emission reductions.

Granola Overview

Granola is professional-grade, supported software free for personal use making it a must have for Linux and Microsoft Windows users.

sorry to be so negative but I am sure that it cannot save more energy than modern cpu's using their own power saving features. Corporations like Intel and AMD investing such great amount of money to the research and creating new ways to save more energy while being fast and responsive. Furthermore creating some account for something as little and useless as power saving software is such a waste of time and electricity ;)

I guess its useful for linux, as linux has absolutely atrocious (ubuntu 11 especially) power saving capabilities...

I really wonder how they are aiming for tablets for ubuntu 12.04 (yes the power problems are a big hindrance - windows 7 i have ~3 hrs, ubuntu 1-1.5 :angry: )

@niharjhatn: That's because of a serious Linux kernel bug that wasn't fixed from months or so. Just yesterday the linux devs fixed that bug. Lets see when does Ubuntu applies the update.
