The PC Power Management solution with everything you need to start making savings today
PowerStudio provides you with a comprehensive set of controls to facilitate the power management of client devices. There are no restrictions on the number of policies that can be created, empowering you to meet the specific needs of all teams and departments.
+ Power Policies checklist:
- Business Hours – Define a set of rules for daytime
- Non-Business Hours – Define a set of rules for night time
- Maintenance Windows – Automatically wake machines up to enable windows updates etc.
- Critical Applications – Check if critical applications are running, if so suppress any power saving actions
- Document Management Scripts – Gracefully save open documents and close applications before performing a power saving action
Schemes are a component of the policies which are used to define when a system should perform a power saving action. For example, setting hibernate to one hour will ensure that PowerStudio will monitor the idle time on the device and when that idle time exceeds 60 minutes it will automatically place the device into hibernation.
+ Schemes checklist:
- Multi-tier schemes to manage multiple power-saving options
- Manage devices and peripheral power consumption
- Apply schemes according to device type
Power saving policies can be applied to machines in a number of ways, including by Active Directory and Organizational Units. Policies can be automatically applied as devices move from one group to another.
Full control of power management is achieved with a lightweight client, deployed and managed directly from PowerStudio (removing the dependency on third-party tools). In addition to enforcing power policies, the client also collects usage data and manages documents saved during power-saving operations.
+ PowerStudio client checklist:
- Deployed and managed without third-party tools
- Collects usage data for energy savings reports
- Manages documents saved during operations
- Performs high-level inventory to collect hardware specifications

- Savings Report – Actual savings evaluated by attributing the ‘powered off’ time to either the user or PowerStudio
- Powered On Report – Total number of machines that were left on between a specified time window that includes a breakdown of which ones were used or idle
- Comparison Report – Compares the current performance against a previous data range so that any savings and improvements can be easily identified
- User Report – Summarized view of user activity across a defined period of time
- Dual Tariffs – Accommodates multiple tariffs to ensure accurate financial reporting
