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