Chrome Rust: Power Management Bye-Bye

Turns out, Google Chrome does something to Windows power management settings to effectively disable the screen saver, turning off hard drives, and sending the box to hibernate/suspend.

So, if you care about your electric bill or, like I do, reducing heat generation, turn off Chrome when you walk away.

Side note, it would be nice if Google provided you with the reference number for the bug report you've just submitted through the dialog box provided with the browser. I don't have all day to fish it out of their bug reporting system.
