OMG, $200 for this, you must be joking? Better to invest in a decent power supply unit that spending so much on this program.

Windows can already do this (apart from the network option). For home use this is just not necessary, though I can see it's use in the workplace and educational establishments.

Update the help file, it's not very intuitive. Include a decent video tutorial. Which would be great for novice users.

Change the name of the program, it's not very inspiring or interesting.

The program seems more concerned about network options than actual energy savings. I see no buttons or information on how to actually save energy

A portable version is definitely out of the question for this type of software, especially if you are going to use it on a network system; you'd have to make a copy for each computer, lol.

Add an option to include a quick launch shortcut and change the desktop shortcut. It's the most boring shortcut I've ever seen.

improve the help file with troubleshooting/configuration tips. Presumably settings in windows firewall need to be adjusted on client computers in order to accept incoming communications (such as ping requests).

The 'Add All' command should add all the found computers, not the entire subnet.
