The following items present the detailed plans and results for the power management controls project.   Our goal is to make the process of collecting, reviewing, and synthesizing the information for the project as transparent as possible, allowing easy access on the web to great majority of project data and publications.  Unless noted, all of these are in PDF (Portable Document Format). Documents are listed in order of posting on the web, most recent first.

       For brochures and powerpoint presentations, see the Overview page.

Research Phase - Final Report

The research phase of the Power Management Controls project lasted from mid-2000 through the end of 2002.  While the draft User Interface Standard was a key result, the final report for the project contains a great deal of background information, particularly in the eight appendices.
