Features of some Intel processors, including thePentium, for reducing power consumption. These featuresoperate at two levels: the microprocessor and the system.The processor can enter a low power state duringnon-processor intensive tasks (such as word processing),or a very low-power state when the computer is not in use ("sleep" mode). At the system level, system management modecan slow down, suspend, or completely shut down various systemcomponents to save energy.
