Enterprise PCs Work While They Sleep -- Saving Energy and Money -- with New Software (image) University of California - San Diego Share Print E-Mail Caption Enterprise PCs running SleepServer (black line) can enter energy-saving sleep mode but maintain their presence on networks and remain accessible via remote connections. Sleep-working enterprise PCs are accessible via remote connections and maintain their presence on voice over IP, instant messaging, and peer-to-peer networks even though the PCs are in low-power sleep mode. SleepServer can reduce energy consumption on enterprise PCs previously running 24/7 by an average of 60 percent, according to a new peer-reviewed study presented by UC San Diego computer scientists on June 24 at the 2010 USENIX Annual Technical Conference in Boston.
