An energy signal is one of infinate energy, but finite power, so an infinate (length) periodic level bounded signal. IE sinewave, like what you get from you electricity mains.
A power signal is one of infinate power, but finite energy. So an infinate level but finite time. Like a delta function, or transiant spike.
Hmmmm, but it could be the other way around as it has been years since I was at uni.

i am some reservations against Maui views .....
both are mutually exclusive
power sig will have finite power and infinite energy; it is periodic
energy signal will have finite energy and zero power; it is aperiodic
there are aslo which is power and energyone eg is t*2
let the debate continue so that solution/answer will born
Energy signal is one which has finite energy, so that it makes sense to talk about its energy, more than its power. Like a limited duration signal whose square will sum up to a finite number, but power is zero. A power signal is one that has finite power, like a periodic signal whose square integrated over all time is infinity (means inifinte energy), but averaged over time gives a finite value.
An ever increasing signal has infinite power and infinite energy, so is neither a power signal nor a energy signal

that is a helpfull answer. but can you tell us please - me and brahma- why or where we use this cassifiation of signals?
i'm reading about it in a book about signals and systems but i haven't found a practical use for it in my study yet, so even i understand it the way you put it, i can't attatch this information to a practical example. thanks alot
