Hello fellows,

 

and thank you for making the most necessary of all MacOS applications, Microsoft Remote Desktop :)

 

I use it every day a lot with my MBA M1, calling my Intel NUC / Win 10 Pro host.

 

I'm interested in saving battery power. MRD is not very power-hungry - but, it hogs power ALL the time, which i think is unnecessary.

 

So, my idea comes here:

 

Please make MRD "power nap" -aware, to save battery power. Many MacOS apps go to power nap when they are just idling without anything to do. Power nap -state can be observed in MacOS Activity Monitor.

 

I think there are two situations at when MRD should go to power nap:

 

1) When it is not (yet) connected to any host, presenting the Connection Center (or without any window open).

 

2) When it is in "Do you want to reconnect?" -state.
