Windows application that debug battery consumption
I have the following dilemma: I am testing several programs which have power saving features that can be used on laptops running on battery. I want to measure the effectiveness of such features and learn if they are garbage or not. In other words, I want to find a way to measure the power consumption of a program with the power savings features disabled and then with them enabled.
Is there a way to do this via software measurements, in Windows? It doesn't have to be a very exact measurement. Approximations will do just fine.
