Idle Saver Suggestion

Instead of just when pc is idle for 30 secs can we also have a network in/out measurement to act on?

What I'm getting at it say Dropbox - the process was sitting there uploading data but its actual CPU use is low so the PC eventually considered itself idle, enabled power saver and eventually turned its self off. I was away but I thought my dropbox was syncing for two days when actually it did 15mins and then stopped.

If there has been a setting alongside Idle saying if network in/out below some value then also change power otherwise consider PC in use as if a process was using high cpu.

What do you think? Or is this functionality already there and i've just missed it?

That's an interesting idea. That capability does not exist in Process Lasso, or, to my knowledge, elsewhere.

As you've described in your scenario, I can envision how taking network activity into account could be of utility to power profile automation.

I'll consider it going forward. Thanks for the feedback!
