Energy reduction has become an important design problem. Although most of consumer electronic systems are user centric, existing energy management methods are device centric. These methods either assume unchangeable operational environment or rely on very simplified policies, which eventually lead to large energy losses. In this paper, we present a new energy management approach that allows systems to monitor their users for energy saving. We discuss applications of this approach in personal computers, TV sets and home automation system and show the experimental results.
