Features and Capabilities

Power Manager is unrivalled. Power Manager offers the widest range of features and capabilies available in any of our energy saving solutions.

Two Editions, One Great Engine

Power Manager is available in two editions: Standard and Professional.

Start with Power Manager Standard. This edition includes everything you need to quickly create and benefit from an energy saving schedule.

As the number of Macs you are managing increases, add a copy of Power Manager Professional to ease your workload.

Professional works alongside Standard to provide remote management, easy creation of installer packages, and the ability to manage multiple schedules. Both products are complementary – they work together to create a workflow.


Power Manager is frequently compared to other tools available on Mac OS X. Note that you can always combine Power Manager with your favourite tools and existing workflow. See the Administrator Guide for more information about working with other scheduling tools.
