Power scheme is a collection of settings that manage the power usage of the computer. The settings define after what period of inactivity to turn off the computer display and hard drives to save power, put the computer to standby, in hibernation, or shut the computer down.
The Altiris Power Scheme Task component helps you discover and remotely configure the power scheme settings of your Windows computers. The Power Scheme Task component is installed when you choose to install Client Management Suite in the Symantec Installation Manager. It is not installed if you install individual solutions.
The Power Scheme Task component includes a Power Scheme Inventory task and a collection of predefined tasks with different power scheme settings. According to your requirements, you can configure the settings of the predefined tasks according to your needs or create custom power scheme management tasks.
The Power Scheme Task that you run does not change the power schemes that Windows or other applications install. It creates and activates the Altiris Power Scheme with the power scheme settings that you specify.
