"Power Save dramatically reduces an organization’s operating costs by eliminating unnecessary computer energy consumption"
- King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok
Challenges faced

King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB) is a leading technology university in Thailand. There are two campuses located in the north of Bangkok and in Prachinburi Province. The Faculty of Information Technology operates on over 185 PCs and approximately 20 servers in an all Windows environment. The faculty did not have an existing centralized PC power management plan, so all computers were shut down manually at the users’ discretion.

A Solution That Worked

KMUTNB deployed Power Save on their workstations. With the help of Power Save’s Power Plans, they can customize different levels of energy management for specific days of the week, and for different times of the day. The faculty has opted for a plan that turns of monitors after 15 minutes of inactivity, while standby PCs are turned off within 30 minutes of inactivity. The university is now saving approximately 5,000 U$ a year and over 42,000 Kwh per year.

Leading Technology University Deploys Energy Management Software
by Dmitry Shesterin

King Mongkut’s University of Technology of North Bangkok is now saving about $25,- per computer per year thanks to Faronics Power Save, an energy management software that dramatically reduces operating costs by eliminating unnecessary computer energy consumption.

Power Save keeps computers running at this University when users truly need them, and powers them down when workstation become inactive.

Faronics’ energy management software provides a rapid Return-on-Investment that can be verified through a cohort of energy savings reports.

King Mongkut’s University of Technology achieved full Return on Investment in its energy management software within six months.

Power Save takes computer energy management to the next level by analyzing not only keyboard and mouse inactivity, but by also looking at the CPU, disk, network, and application status before taking any energy management actions.

With the help of Power Save’s energy management policies, King Mongkut’s University of Technology customizes different levels of computer energy management for specific days of the week, and for different times of the day.

Before Power Save, many university computers were unintentionally left on overnight or even during the weekend. With Power Save, the University has found a flexible computer energy management software solution that reliably powers down computers during periods of inactivity, saving a significant amount of energy, translating into tangible financial savings.
