Intel® Active Management Technology PC Alarm Clock

Version 1

    Management of client systems in an enterprise environment typically involves an IT management console communicating with agents that require the client systems to be powered on. This situation poses a couple of options. The first is to perform management operations while the users of the client systems are present and potentially disrupt their productivity. The second is to perform the management operations when the users are not present which requires the client systems to be left on outside of normal working hours, potentially wasting energy. Management solutions have provided the means to remotely wake systems to address this, but there has not been a solution that allows the local agents to do this autonomously.
