I suggest you ...

Display the current power plan in the battery

I always forget in which power plan is currently set, so I'd like to see it in the battery display, ideally with a given icon/color.

        The text/format should be/read as follows

        Power Plan: "Name"

        i.e.

        Power Plan: Maximum Performance

        My suggestion to this is that in the pop up box with all the stats there is just one line that says "Power"; "Balanced"; "Power Saver" or whatever power plan is in place. Only one line with no other stats.
        Thanks

        Can you be more specific on how you'd like to display it? I can't imagine showing the name of the current profile, no way it would fit. In XP you can have multiple custom power profiles, so how would you show that? In the Status popup?
