    Does anyone know of a way to schedule a shutdown of 1125SE devices?
    Our users never turn them off and it seems like an awful waste of power to leave them permanently running. Not to mention we have to send out an email request for 400 terminals to be rebooted if we want to deploy new firmware etc.

    Thanks in advance,

    That is a good question, there is no remote shut down command for the terminal so I it’s not possible. The terminals only use 7.3 Watt’s when not in use compared to a PC which uses an average of 180 Watt’s so its really not that big and issue, you are already saving power just using 1125’s!

    1125 Power usage


    Standby – 7.3W

    Average – 8.6W

    All ports loaded to maximum spec – 23.5W

    The reboot is a separate question; you could use Rapport Workgroup with a reboot script set to run on a week end. I have done this before to update devices out of hours.

    One final suggestion is to use this command in your wnos.ini

    AutoSignoff=yes Shutdown=yes
    Shutdowncount=0

    This will force the 1125 to power off when the user logs out of the session, this should solve the problem as terminals will always be off when not in use. Forcing the open sessions to log off from the terminal server on the weekend will power down the devices if users don’t log off. You could do this by setting a disconnect after x seconds of idle time on the servers.

    Wow, and it looked like such a simple question! Post back with which way you are going to go,

    Cheers,

    Thanks TT!

    You wnos.ini entry suggestion is perfect for our purposes and has been rolled out to 400 devices. I’m sure there are a bunch of users out there who will complain about having to turn their terminals on in the morning now but at least it’ll make our lives easier when sending updates.

    Cheers
