Leaving your computer on all the time is one way to have your computer ready for you whenever you need it, but it is not the smart way. The smart way is for the computer to turn on before you want it so it can download EMail, news and updates.
The smart way is for the computer to turn off automatically if you are not using it, and turn on again later. Volt can do this and more, including all forms of shutdown/suspension, delayed shutdown/suspension, command line operation and logging.
The secondary function of Volt is to provide a visual display of the internal battery state of a Laptop Computer. This can be shown via a compact window with a graph and a text line, or by a simple icon with pop-up status in the system tray.
The window can be set to stay on, or when the battery state changes according to the users preference. It also can be placed in various set places, or be movable and can also be set to be on-top of other windows and/or made transparent.
