The cost of electricity is continuing to rise, and power companies are offering rebates for organizations who take a “green” approach to their businesses. So why have so many organizations been slow to adopt power management initiatives? The basic reason is that the management of power settings is a cumbersome task and the actual return on investment is not easy to calculate. Moreover, organizations need users’ machines available for patches, software installation, and remote access, which often results in desktops and laptops being left running after work hours, wasting energy and money.
