Project on power management

Hello people,

I am new here so I am not entirely familiar with the regulations, so forgive me for any mistakes.

I am a third year computer science student and currently I am looking for a project to work for my final year project. I had an abstract idea to work on the problem linux has with the power management, especially on laptops, and develop a tool that will help users.

Doing an extensive research I found that there are couple tools which do the same thing like the PowerTop tool which is a state of the art tool developed by Intel. My question to you is, can I still work on this area and produce something or you think that field is covered entirely and effectively by PowerTop or similar tools?

Thanks in advance for your answers
