Too small font and too light (silver on white ) makes it hard to read

I was interested, clicked the link, and started reading. Then birds started chirping loudly from my speakers. I clicked the back button on my mouse faster than you can say "unnecessary noise".

Seriously, don't make noisy web pages. The only exceptions are "video" pages (where a user knows a video will start playing and it will make sounds -- youtube is one example).

As stated, it's hard to read and the sounds get annoying.  Also, a Gmail address for contact? Very unprofessional.

I'll look at the site when you get rid of the bird noises and not before!

Seriously, this is such a bad idea and the sounds are so high pitched that they can be heard over a distance via headphones. What are you trying to achieve with this?

I would replace "a fair amount" and "100s of trees" with some legit numbers. My feeling is that "a fair amount" is probably too tiny to really care about or cover the cost of the software, but, I could be wrong.

The English could use some work.  "Wastage" is a word I've never heard (though it makes me think of 'spoilage' related to grocery stores and spoiled produce, so maybe it really is a word...?)

Also, "in office" is never appropriate that I can think of -- should always be "in the office".

@Doug: Nothing wrong with "wastage" to my British ears.  (Those birds though, yikes!)  Agree about "in office".

Could just be that I'm tired and haven't had coffee yet... but the white text on the bright green background burns my eyes. 

Layout seems fine, though.

The front page needs a lot more information:

- Is it network based or desktop?

- If desktop, what is the advantage of it over the built-in power management tools?

- What does the configuration user interface look like?

- Is it configurable for time of day, days of the week, and idle duration?

- Does it manage display shutdown and system shutdown separately?

- Are the systems completely shut down or put into sleep mode?

- Are there reports to estimate how much operating time it has saved?

Without Adobe Flash installed the top part of the web site, including menu, is not shown... I'm not sure why web site like this requires Flash at all.
