    I made this quick in VB.NET because I was tired of constantly switching between power schemes manually and a bunch of batch scripts was cumbersome. I run a PC with XP 32bit Pro that I use for personal/studying/developing, and also as a server while I'm out of the room so I change the power settings a lot (e.g. when going to class needed it not to hibernate, or when watching a movie needed the monitors to stay on and have no screen saver). It got old so I put this program in my quick launch bar to make my life easier.
