A three-tier classification of energy-saving techniques for mobile computing devices is presented. It is shown that software algorithms determine the possibility of adaptive behavior of the mobile device for selecting the operating mode with minimum consumption of electric energy. The examples of existing energy-saving methods and a bibliography on the subject are given.
