Saving computer administrators from having to perform the same manual tasks.
By incorporating smart shutdown policies - Schools, businesses and libraries reduce their computer electricity usage by over 30 per cent.... A typical desktop PC uses about 65 watts. Add another 80 watts for a 17" CRT monitor (35 watts for an LCD). To put this into perspective, a light bulb uses about 75 watts. So a typical computer uses about 1.5 to 2 light bulbs' worth of energy.
