In any School, when a PC is left switched on and no one is using it, its wasting money. Often scripts are used to turn PCs off at a given time but these are complicated, often fail due to device drivers preventing shutdown, and are inflexible.
If you install TaskForceCO2 you can set up schemes that allow you to save money during any period when a PC is not in use and most importantly, it makes the procedure accountable.
For instance, you wouldn’t want your PCs shutting down every 2 minutes but if no one has touched it for say 30 minutes, and its after a certain time like 3.30pm, its likely the user has gone home so you can execute an automatic shut down of the PC.
You could also say, ‘Hibernate any PC that hasn’t been touched for 10 minutes after 9am then shut the PCs down at 4pm but only if no one is logged on, then shut it down at 6pm regardless if someone is logged on or not.’.
That would mean during the period of hibernation the PC would use virtually no electricity but save the data until finally shutting it down properly at 6pm.
With TaskForceCO2 all these savings are recorded so you can see at a glance if your investment has paid off. In our experience, this is usually within 2 weeks.
Its virtually impossible not to save more than a School District License costs.
