technique is presented. The technique can include determining, at a computing
device including one or more processors, a power remaining in a battery of the
computing device. The technique can include determining, at the computing
device, a selected operating mode from a plurality of operating modes for the
computing device based on the power remaining in the battery. Each of the
plurality of operating modes can correspond to a different range of power
remaining in the battery of the computing device. The technique can also include
adjusting, at the computing device, operation of the computing device based on
the selected operating mode. The selected operating mode can be associated with
one or more display functions of the computing device, and adjusting operation
of the computing device can include adjusting operation of the one or more
display functions to adjust power usage of the computing device.
