Win XP turns off AMD power saver

Author: JT Smith

From ZDNet: "Microsoft has quietly fixed a problem with Windows XP that disables the power management functions of AMD's line of mobile processors. The fix allows users of laptops based on Athlon 4 and Duron mobile chips to use PowerNow! technology, which extends battery life by reducing processor power when it isn't needed by applications."
