NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxpower  - controls energy saving features on systems that
       can be power managed

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The Power Manager application, dxpower, is used  to  maintain
 and manage the power management features on computers
       and peripherals that can be power managed.

       Power Manager lets you place monitors in three power  saving
  modes:  Standby,  Suspend, or Off and lets you selectively
 spin down inactive disks to reduce  power  consumption.
  You also can specify when you want power management
       features to be active: always, never, or only  at  a  specific
 time of day.

       Privileged  (root) users have the capability to set system
       wide power management values.   Non-privileged  users  set
       power  management values on their monitors for the current
       log in session.

       The Power Manager application can be invoked from: The CDE
       Application Manager Application Group: System_Admin System
       Admin Subgroup:  DailyAdmin

       If you are not using CDE, start  Power  Manager  from  the
       command line: # /usr/bin/X11/dxpower

       For  more  information  about how to use the Power Manager
       application, start the application and click on  the  Help

       An  alternative  to using the Power Manager application is
       to set and control power management  attributes  from  the
       command line by using the sysconfig command. Refer to System
 Administration for more information about setting  and
       controlling power management from the command line.
