I am using an ADC-16 to log what is happening on a remote site that works of solar power. The problem is that the laptop consumes more power than the actual loads that I am monitoring. I have tried unsuccesfully to get the laptop in a low power mode, while still logging.
I notice that the hard drive light on the laptop flashes every 1sec. Is this a part of windows? I have been trying to get the laptop to switch of harddrive after a while and maybe store to usb jump drive.
Have somebody done something similar?
Any advice apreciated!
