Power Save Mac is an effective and reliable tool that can control and manage energy throughout an enterprise. Computers are essential items for business and communications, but consume large amounts of electrical resources. Energy costs can add up to millions of dollars a year, and today companies are looking for ways to save. Power Save Mac offers a way to effectively manage computer resources during downtime, and can greatly reduce annual energy costs.

Power Save Mac integrates seamlessly with Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) or any other third-party management utility to allow administrators to deploy their power saving configuration package to a single or multiple computers.

Users can choose from the following configuration options to design a customized installation package to suit the needs of their specific environment:

  • Frequency: specify if the action is a one-time event or a repeatable action
  • Action: configure the computers to start up, shut down, restart, or log out
  • Schedule: choose if the action will occur every day, on weekdays, weekends, or a specific day of the week
  • Time:choose a specific time of day for the action to occur

Power Save Mac's configuration screen also allows administrators to control inactive workstations between regularly scheduled action items. Administrators can configure logouts, restarts, and shutdowns to take place after a specified period of inactivity.
