The project is about to collect information where all the power is going to and to find sweet spots for saving power (and money).

      Am really really looking forward to this, as a somehow completely different project : * What are the various reasons WS do not get switched off? Can we help? * What can be tuned OS-wise to bring down power consumption? How much? * Does STD & STR really work? Where? * Present the results finally and rise consciousness for the power consumption * More, more, more ... :-)

      i am not quite sure if we really can change something regarding the workstations, but there is plenty other stuff in the building that consumes a lot.

      Right now Joachim Plack had informed me to try out suspend to disk and - voila! - "pm-hibernate" just works for me on my SLE11 systems so that now I can help to save power over night and in particular over the weekend!
