A typical desktop PC with a 17-inch LCD monitor requires about 100
watts for the computer and 35 watts for the monitor. If left on 24x7 for
one year, this same computer will consume 874 kilowatt hours of electricity—that’s
enough to release 750 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the
equivalent of driving 820 miles in the average car! PowerSave is the only
computer energy management solution that analyzes CPU, disk, keyboard, mouse,
and application activity before taking power management actions. It is also
the only solution that is available for both Mac and Windows computers.
PowerSave changes all this by delivering desktop computer energy management
that doesn’t interfere with user or IT needs. PowerSave keeps computers
running when users need them, accurately determines when computers are inactive
so they can be powered down, and can prove its rapid return-on-investment
through network-wide power consumption and savings reports.
POWERSAVE FOR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND GOVERNMENT/CORPORATE
- COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES:
Every educational institution is concerned about the budget—year after
year administrators are pressured to keep school operations running smoothly
with less and less money. One area of recognized savings has always been
the classroom computers. By reducing desktop power consumption, schools can
reduce their energy bill. Most schools have found this to be difficult to
implement as the standard energy saving features that come with computers
are disruptive to user and IT activity. Users can not afford to have computers
power down during classroom activities or assignments, and IT personnel require
computers to be on during maintenance and update sessions. Forced to leave
the computers running all day and night, IT is either unable or unwilling
to power computers down when they are not in use.
PowerSave is designed to look at CPU and Disk Utilization thresholds that
IT administrators can set so that Power Save will not shut down computers
if background jobs such as VPN, remote access, and remote backup are
running. PowerSave allows IT administrators to specify critical programs that
exempt from power down if they are running. CPU and Disk Utilization
combines with this feature to ensure that systems are not powered down when
or teachers do not want them to. PowerSave also supports Standby (recommended)
and Hibernate power modes to ensure that any unsaved student or teacher
data is not lost.
