Abstract: Recently, an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) devices has become more user-friendly, which raised the problem of power dissipation across the globe and computer systems are one among them. This emerging issue of power dissipation has imposed a very significant issue on the system and software design. The concept of ‗green computing‘ gaining popularity and is being considered as one of the most promising technology by the designers of Information Technology (IT) industry, which demonstrate the environmentally responsible way to reduce the power consumption and maximize the energy efficiency. In this paper, we have proposed an energy sustainable framework of the power schemes for operating systems to reduce the power consumption by computer systems and presented a Green Power tool (GP tool). This tool is designed using JAVA technology, which requires least configuration to make a decision for reducing the power consumption and proposed Swift mode algorithm, allows users to input the working time of their choice then after the end of time algorithm starts detection of human activity on the computer system. We also compared the Swift mode algorithm with existing power scheme in the operating system that provides up to 66% of the power saving. Finally, we have profiled the proposed framework to analyze the memory and Central Processing Unit (CPU) performance, which demonstrated that there is no memory leakage or CPU degradation problem and framework‘s behavior remain constant under various overhead scenarios of the memory as well as CPU. The proposed framework requires 3–7 MB memory space during its execution.
