Pankaj, Hi, I’ve used it in a very large environment of 18,000+ systems and it worked very well. However, since you have to deploy a client to each machine you would be much better off to deploy the Group Policy Preferences (GPP) CSE and use it to do power management instead. It’s much easier, not to mention that GPP gives you tons of other functionality as well. There is a good blog about it on the Directory Services team site located here (Parts 1 & 2 cover Vista/2008 and part 3 covers Windows XP): http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/03/17/managing-power-with-group-policy-part-1-of-3.aspx http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/03/19/managing-power-with-group-policy-part-2-or-3.aspx http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/03/21/managing-power-with-group-policy-part-3-of-3.aspx Best of all GPP is free and DOES NOT require a Windows 2008 domain, just one Windows Vista SP1 workstation or Windows 2008 member server to create and edit the policies on. If you didn’t gather it from the blog, keep in mind that with Vista/2008 you don’t need anything special to do power management; you can do it natively in Group Policy (not even GPP is required).
