This is a repost of a project that I posted around Christmas 2011. I am very sorry for letting this project expire; there was a lot going on here. But I am ready now to re-open it again. Ik hope some of you wil consider of taking this challenge. Here's what I need:
I need a small tool that can be distributed with a stand-by button. I will post a picture of the button; the button is connected via USB and invokes the computer to go into stand-by mode.
This tool needs to calculate the amount of energy that is saved each time the computer is put in stand by mode.
As an example u can take a look at the software that can be downloaded for use with the 'original' ecobutton.

What is really important, is that the software can be personalized. I mean that a separate picture ( a logo or an other illustration) in e.g. Bmp or jpg format can be added. Any file that has a pre defined size and has a pre defined name will be automatically displayed in the screen that tells you how much you saved.
I am looking forward to your reply and please do not hesitate to post any questions.
