Managing Events

Events can be enabled or disabled. The event’s enabled state determines if the event can be scheduled. If an event is disabled, the event can not be triggered and thus the event’s actions will not be performed.

Enabling an Event

If an event is disabled, it can not be performed. Enabling an event will allow the event to be scheduled ready for performing.

An enabled event will be immediately scheduled. If appropriate, the event will be added to the Schedule Engine’s pending and on demand lists, see the section called “Pending Events”.

Procedure 5.2. Enable an Event

  1. Launch Power Manager.

  2. Locate the desired event in the events view.

    Six of these eight events are enabled and will be scheduled
  3. Click on the event’s associated checkbox to enable () the event.

Disabling an Event

A disabled event can not be performed. If the event supports being triggered on demand, this behaviour will also be disabled.

Disabling an event will immediately remove the event from the pending list and on demand list.
