Power management tab

– for Scout 15.3 and later versions –

Especially when using mobile devices, you will need options for power management. By using profiles, on the Power management tab, you can pre-define power management settings for your computer. These settings become active when you or the system enable the relevant profile:

You can either explicitly activate one of the power management profiles or, for mobile devices, you can let the system choose by selecting the Auto option: If the device is plugged in, the profile High performance will be active. If the device is on battery power, the profile Power saver is activated.

For both profiles, you can additionally distinguish between working and non-working hours.1 You can further optimize energy consumption by making more rigorous use of energy saving options outside working hours. To do so, you are required to specify your working hours first. Once you have defined working hours, based on these, the system automatically switches between the Working hours profile and the Default (Non-working hours) profile. Important: If you choose not to define working hours, the system will use the Default profile settings, regardless of the day of the week and time.
