Vista Battery Saver

We all know that the battery life of your laptop is a precious commodity, with this in mind I have discovered a program that claims to actually reduce the amount of power your Vista
based laptop consumes.

The Vista Battery Saver works on the premise that turning off the Vista's side-bar and Aero effects will save you up to 70% of your
laptop battery.

Looking at the programs interface, it does look rather promising...

Since its rather hard to believe that simple cosmetic changes would result in such a drastic change in power consumption, the author has ran tests to prove that the program actually works,
check them out here.

I would love to test it, yet I am running Ubuntu on my laptop, so
your input on this would be rather interesting.
