As part of our commitment to the School’s environmental activities, IMT will be introducing a power saving scheme for PCs in open spaces.
From mid August there will be a phased roll out to PCs in campus computer rooms and open areas (e.g. the Library). The new scheme will:
- Log users off and power down (sleep) when the computer is idle for 25 minutes (no keyboard or mouse activity)
- Send the computer to sleep if no user has logged in for more than 10 minutes
At login, you will see a notification if you are using a PC which is part of the power down scheme:
Before automatic log off, you will always be asked if this can happen (e.g. if you are watching a video, the PC will technically be idle):
If you have any feedback on this new initiative or other energy saving ideas you’d like to share, please contact us: email@example.com
