Automatically reduces your electricity expenses. Power Save reduces the school’s electricity expenses and CO2- emissions, without influencing the school’s service to students and staff. Power Save can automatically turn off computers, which have not been used in a while. You decide which computers Power Save is allowed to turn off and when. It is possible to use different settings for different departments. By customising the settings, you can avoid that students and staff, who work on the school’s computers and sign off to have lunch, loose their work because the computer switches off.
