Research Phase - Final Report

The research phase of the Power Management Controls project lasted from mid-2000 through the end of 2002. While the draft User Interface Standard was a key result, the final report for the project contains a great deal of background information, particularly in the eight appendices.

  • Attachment 1 - The Initial Draft of IEEE 1621 (12 pages; 0.1 MB; December, 2002).
  • Appendix I - The Power Control User Interface Standard: Background and Rationales (17 pages; 0.5 MB; December, 2002).
  • Appendix II - Insights for Power Controls from User Interface Literature Review (9 pages; 0.1 MB; December, 2002).
  • Appendix III - Accessibility of Power Controls (4 pages; 0.1 MB; December, 2002).
  • Appendix IV - Power Indicator Colors and Accessibility (5 pages; 0.1 MB; December, 2002).
