How is your PC system doing when it’s snoozing? Find out using new Sleep Study tool

Sleep Study, a new tool on Windows 8.x systems with InstantGo, can help you identify sources of battery drain that occurred while the PC was in sleep mode, writes Kevin A Chin, Windows program manager, in a blog post.

Sleep Study tells you “how well the system slept and how much activity it experienced during that time,” he writes. That’s because even though your system is in sleep mode, it’s still doing some work, “albeit at a lower frequency.”

You can use Sleep Study to see which apps and devices are most active during a sleep session, Chin writes. Sleep Study reviews all sleep sessions longer than 10 minutes and provides you with an HTML-generated report that color codes each session according to its power consumption.
