» pwrstat v2.6 Description
pwrstat is a minimalist clutter free & really small (14,848 bytes) battery & memory monitor.

Displays a battery bar at the top of the screen in most situations except when full screen applications are active (intentional).
QVGA, VGA, WVGA & possibly other display modes are supported.
Portrait & landscape screen orientation modes are supported.
Respects Windows Mobile power states and consumes very little battery power. Windows Mobile has various power states: 1) fully turned on, 2) screen off, CPU on, phone & various devices are on, 3) screen off, CPU off, but phone & various devices are on, 4) device completely switched off. pwrstat is only active at 1) & is suspended or not running in all other modes. pwrstat only wakes from hardware events.
Should be compatible with most applications (eg: applications that lock the screen like Windows Mobile password screen, or applications that replace the NavBar such as WisBar.
Bar colors can now be separately changed in HKCUSoftwarePwrStat* registry keys (RGB values). Restart pwrstat to see changes.
Bar height can be changed by editing HKCUSoftwarePwrStatBarHeight registry key (valid values from 1 to 4 pixels). Restart pwrstat to see changes.
The bars are segmented. Each bar has 10 segments (to let users gauge power/memory levels in percentage).
The power bar blinks when device is being charged.
The bars are only updated every 4 seconds or when there is screen activity that affects the bars.

To install, download the .exe file & put this .exe file into "Program Files" of your PDA. Make a shortcut of the program to your startup folder. To stop a running instance, re-run the .exe & it'll prompt you to stop all running instances.
Version 2.6 comes with 2 versions of executables, one supports Windows Mobile power states & the other doesn't. Use whichever applicable.

Note: pwrstat can be kept smaller & to use less memory when it doesn't come with screens for changing color or bar height. Use other software to edit pwrstat settings.

Changes from version 2.5:
Added code to suspend itself when screen is off.
Fixed pwrstat hanging problem on HTC Touch HD devices.

Slows down on my Treo Pro too. Any update to v2.6?

Doesn't work properly on WM6.1. Sometimes it hangs my Treo Pro. After removing this application, my Treo Pro works perfectly.

Thank you very much Bob, I changed the bars to white and the dimmed segments to grey, it looks very nice on my diamond... it sucks that the regedit for mobile is only a trial, but I got my use out of it anyway. I also used Diamond Tweak and replaced my default battery icon with the date and time and put a shortcut in my startup folder so it loads when my phone starts... Anyway thanks again Bob for the reply

DarkStrobeLight: get regedit on PPC and run it. Then go to HKCU\Software\PwrStat\ and you will see a number of values you can change.

@Bob...Is that in the Exe file itself or is this somthing in my Windows folder? I have regedit but it can't edit exe files

Why 3 exe files? Which file to install? If I want threaded, installing pwrstat-threaded-pwrchk.exe in enought? DarkStrobeLight: by change color, it means that you can change the color of bars by going into registry and change their value. For example 255 255 0 for yellow bar.
