Hardware, Embedded Systems "It's the one major part of the PC that's still reminiscent of the PC's primordial, text-based beginnings, but the familiarly-clunky BIOS could soon be on its deathbed, according to MSI. The motherboard maker says it's now making a big shift towards point and click UEFI systems, and it's all going to kick off at the end of this year." FINALLY.

You confuse me. You say 'no you are wrong, instead we should do exactly what you said we should do'. The device manages it's own power and the os tells it what to do. No frimware involved at all. Well, I suppose there would be firmware on the device, but it has no delusions of booting the machine. So no frimware between the os and the device would be a better way of putting it.

Your original post wasn't entirely clear, but you did say "push the power management down to the hardware itself", implying that all power management is done in hardware instead of managed by software and system firmware. If that's not what you meant, then I retract my accusations.
