    If your motherboard BIOS has option to enable HPET (High Performance Event Timer) then enable it and also enable them in OS. Some software will take hit from it but some will work better. Also switch to Windows 8.1 and Apple Mac OS X Maverick (10.9) which uses Timer coalescing, which means it delays timer and try to harmonize with other software time.
    Any software which goes lower than OS default timer is bad for power consumption. Example Google Chrome browser.

    It is bitter truth but IE11 on Windows 8.1 is better in terms of power consumption and is more green overall.

    Also not to mention if you want to increase your laptop battery timings, switch to modern OS.

    Windows XP timers are worse than Windows Vista above, not to mention it does not even support HPET.

    Now for people what does Timers are actually..
    Its trigger from OS or applications to tell that they are whether it foreground active state or idle state. If idle state then CPU kicks processor in lower clock and power saving mode while if not then it will run it high clock to provide maximum performance.
    Timers are different time. Just like any research study, short interval timers are fast and more but not precise while long timers and slow timers are more accurate.
