  • Patent number: 5790875
    Abstract: The method relates to minimizing power consumption in a computing device, which executes the requested tasks in a high power mode, in which it has normal processing power and, correspondingly, normal power consumption, and which, after it has executed the requested tasks, is switched to a low power mode, in which it has limited processing power and, correspondingly, a considerably lower power consumption. In the method of the invention, the power consumption of a computing device is decreased by lengthening the time during which the device remains in the low power mode in such a way that the device is not switched to a high power mode immediately when the user starts the input, but the switching is delayed.
