I have a very slow Internet connection at home. If I want to download some 1 GB of data from Internet, I usually keep my laptop on for the whole night. I use Flashget as my downloader.
I want to do something by which most of the hardware which is not used, only while downloading is happening, do not consume power. Like for screen I have defined in power plan to go off after 1 min. But I want to conserve more power.
Any ideas how?
