Power Save functions...

I was just trying to set the screen saver and power saving features and I had an idea.

How about if you built in some power saving features into the kiosk software?

It would only need something very basic like:

Turn off monitor between x and y time. Where x is say 10:00pm and y is 6:00am

This way we can still have some power saving functions even though the screen saver and windows power saving features are disabled.

I think the Windows XP already have this functions, it is in Control Panel->Performance and maintenance->Power Options
I am not if we have disabled it.

I don't think Windows has the ability to enable/disable power saving options for specific times of the day.

What I'm thinking is some kind of system that allows the monitor to "turn off" only from 12:00am to 6:00am... not just after x minutes of inactivity.

No worries though.. I think I can do this with Windows Scheduler instead.
