POWER MANAGEMENT

Technology-related power is a significant portion of Riverpoint’s overall energy budget. To conserve our resources, Riverpoint ITS’ power management conserves our power expenditure – helping to lower our campus’ energy costs and reduce our environmental impact.

Available To

Faculty, Staff, Departments, IT Affiliates

Benefits

Riverpoint ITS uses Verdiem’s Surveyor power management software to centrally manage the campus’ power consumption. This software automatically switches workstation computers between active and standby states – conserving energy
consumption while minimizing interference with our campus’ computing needs.

Features

  • Unlike power management systems that are built-in to a computer’s operating system, centralized power management is more efficient and effective, enabling ITS to ensure workstations do not miss critical updates while in a standby state.
  •  Verdiem’s power management software can be customized. To adjust your department’s power management settings or schedule, contact the Technical Support Center.
  •  Verdiem’s power management works with our Remote Access – VPN technology. Remote users can “wake up” a computer in a standby state. Learn more about Wake-on-Web in our Knowledgebase or use the Verdiem Surveyor Wake-on-Web page.
