Power Management Initiative
As part of the University's overall sustainability plan, ITS has deployed a power management application that allows for central energy management of computers. The program puts idle machines into a sleep state and tracks the energy consumption and amount of savings. Regular actions such as updates and backup still occur. Not all machines are candidates for this program and the Desktop Support Specialist will work with the faculty or staff to determine the appropriate course of action. Since many users establish remote connections to their machines from off site, users can wake up a sleeping machine as needed.
Wesleyan has realized considerable savings in labs and classrooms using this technology.
