Using Power Management

The dtpower Program

The Power Management program called dtpower launches a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows you to designate periods of inactivity after which the system will shut down. You can also use this tool to set the time of day to activate the automatic shutdown (called AutoShutdown); for example, if you want the AutoShutdown feature to activate only after your regular work hours.

On sun4u-architecture workstations, you can also activate the AutoWakeup feature of dtpower, which will power on the system at a specific time following an AutoShutdown.
