    Joulemeter: How Much Power Does Your PC Consume?

    I tried installing this on my Windows 7 laptop [which is a bit flaky at the moment and so might not be a fair test for this bit of software]

    If I can get it going perhaps Edugeek members would like to enter their power consumption into a survey of some kind?

    It comes as an msi, wonder if there's a way of rolling it out via gpo and tracking power usage across the school!?

    good start, failed to start the service, rolled back. Tried to reinstall and the service exists, which it does..... but the program doesn't.... It is Alpha relase I suppose!

    Hitting around 38W here for my laptop, but it doesn't seem to take the second monitor into account.
