Power Save

A typical desktop PC with a 17-inch LCD monitor requires about 100 watts—65 watts for the computer and 35 watts for the monitor. If left on 24×7 for one year, this same computer will consume 874 kilowatt hours of electricity—that’s enough to release 750 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the equivalent of driving 820 miles in the average car!

Faronics Power Save delivers PC power management that does not interfere with user or IT needs. Power Save keeps computers running when users need them, accurately determines when computers are inactive so they can be powered down, and can prove its rapid return-on-investment through network-wide power consumption and savings reports.

Power Save’s non-disruptive PC power management analyzes CPU, disk, keyboard, mouse, and application and network activity before taking computer power management actions. It is also available for both Windows and Mac computers. With an average savings of $50 per computer per year for every computer deployed, Power Save is the ultimate PC power management software solution for desktop and laptop computers.
