BattStat

Need to keep a closer eye on your laptop battery status?

BattStat is a systray application which uses the smart battery support in Windows Vista, XP and 2000 to monitor power usage, battery charge, CPU speed, CPU usage, and power events such as standby/hibernate/resume, battery events, etc. Additionally, it’s capable of monitoring CPU temperature (via Intel Core internal sensors, or ACPI thermal sensors), hard drive temperature (if the drive supports it), and even control hard drive APM/AAM/spindown settings, like the Hitachi PowerBooster does. The binary is about 270KB and requires no installation, dll’s, etc. It can be autorun from the registry with a checkbox.
