Power Save 4.3 Empowers Users to Wake-up their own Computers

SAN RAMON, CA, September 14th, 2010 — Faronics, a global leader in PC power management software, today announced the release of Power Save 4.3. This latest version of the PC energy and cost reducing software now allows users to automatically wake-up their computers at a scheduled time. Also included in this release are several new reports.

Technology in the workplace has advanced significantly to accommodate employees working odd hours, or remotely connecting to their PCs. To ensure these users have access to their computers when necessary, IT Administrators using Power Save are now able to empower their users to schedule their workstations to wake-up at the desired time. The computer will automatically wake out of Standby or Hibernate and be available at the scheduled time. The user can also defer any further power management for an authorized period of time. A network connection is not required to wake-up the computer as the scheduled wake-up is stored locally on the machine.

Also included in this release is the Top Energy Savers Report which ranks the top 25 energy saving workstations to help recognize which Power Plan or hardware is the most efficient. Meanwhile the Bottom Energy Savers Report ranks the lowest 25 energy savings workstations to help identify less resourceful hardware in a deployment. Another report included in this version is the Systems Activity Report which displays power saving actions during a specified period of time, allowing for better visibility into power saving actions on specific workstations.

Faronics Power Save uses intelligent energy management to ensure workstations are available when system resources are required, while conserving power during productivity downtimes. Faronics Power Save provides organizations with centralized computer energy management, allowing companies to continuously maximize their savings by powering IT down daily. Power Save is also non-disruptive, integrates seamlessly with existing IT maintenance routines, and provides organizations with centralized granular cross platform PC power management, savings reports, and a rapid ROI.

A free, fully functional 30 day evaluation version of Faronics Power Save can be downloaded from www.faronics.com for both Windows and Mac computers. Faronics Power Save is also compatible with Faronics Deep Freeze, the company’s award-winning system integrity software solution that prevents configuration drift and workstation downtime.
