Power Saving techniques

By randerson7 ·
We are a school district in an energy saving mode. What is the best practice for a school to adopt to conserve power on hardware. We have instituted a practice of going to "standby" mode after one half hour to conserve. We are leary of machines being left on for days, etc. What is the cost savings? I am aware of an executable to provide shutdown to be pushed across the network at a specified time. Is this doable and will documents be saved, etc. Any history or ideas out there?

You can write a simple logon script that you can distribute with your AD policy, all it needs to do is access the shutdown/hibernate or standbye action, and work with the windows scheduler. This will shut all machines down when there is deffinately not going to be anyone using them.
This depends on your system management though, you (or the admin may have scheduled tasks to do.
