Public workstation power management (Anne)
Anne proposed a new 'green' configuration for public workstations that would allow the public PCs to go into an energy saving sleep mode after a set amount of time, depending on their automated reboot settings. UCSs interested in participating in the test phase will email Anne the public PCs that will have the new settings after the reimaging is done in early August.
