RightMark Processor Power Management Panel (PPM Panel) is a GUI-based application designed to enhance the OS Power Management capabilities, those available by the use of the Power Options Advanced settings dialog box or by the use of the PowerCfg command-line tool.
RightMark PPM Panel can be used to perform the following tasks:
- List AC and DC value preferences for any power setting in active power plan.
- Set AC and DC value preferences for any power setting in active power plan.
- Configure attributes of individual power settings, including whether the attribute is hidden.
OS supported: Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 (Win blue).

Most VMs do not supply full PPM information.
