    In a proposed display power-management scheme, the laptop detects when the user is not looking at the screen, boosting low-power operation to 50 percent and increasing energy savings by up to 13 percent. With the growth of ubiquitous computing has come an increased reliance on laptops over desktops, and display power management (DPM) that prolongs battery life continues to be a critical issue in m...
