Using Power Management

System AutoShutdown and AutoWakeup Controls

You can specify, through the dtpower window, the timing conditions that will cause your system to shut down automatically. This feature is called AutoShutdown.

If you have a sun4u desktop machine, you can also set your system to power on automatically at a specified time. This feature is called AutoWakeup.

Note -

Be sure to read "Choosing to Use Power Management" before changing the AutoShutdown settings.

AutoShutdown uses the Suspend feature to automatically power off your system. When the system powers up again, it resumes in the state in which it was suspended.

Through the dtpower window, you can activate or deactivate the AutoShutdown and AutoWakeup features. You can also specify the following time values:

Note -

AutoWakeup does not occur after you Suspend a system manually; it can occur only after an AutoShutdown.
