Many computing systems have adopted the dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) technique to reduce energy consumption by slowing down operation speed. However, The longer a job executes, the more energy in leakage current the processor consumes for the job. To reduce the power/energy consumption from the leakage current, a processor can enter the dormant mode. Existing research results for leakage-aware DVS scheduling perform procrastination of real-time jobs greedily so that the idle time can be aggregated as long as possible to turn off the processor. This paper proposes algorithms for the procrastination determination of periodic real-time tasks in uniprocessor systems. Instead of greedy procrastination, the procrastination procedures are applied only when the evaluated energy consumption is less than not procrastination. Evaluation results show that our proposed algorithms could derive energy-efficient solutions and outperform existing algorithms. Keywords: Energy-aware systems. .Scheduling, Leakage-aware scheduling. Dynamic voltage scaling. Job procrastination.
