Power Management

Green IT supports the three essential aspects of a sustainable business—people, planet, and profital—also known as the “triple bottom line”. Power management (PM) is one of the easiest ways to contribute to Green IT and achieve demonstrable savings for your organization.

Implement an Energy Savings Policy

Many employees leave their computers running around the clock, forcing organizations to pay for energy even when devices are not in use. Conserve energy and save money by creating a power management policy based on user behavior and work schedules so that the most energy efficient profiles are enforced.

Absolute Manage makes it easy to implement power management policies. By automating power settings and shutdown times, you can ensure devices are turned off after hours or when not in use for significant energy savings. You can also remotely power machines on to install patches and updates.
