Sleep and Hibernation Implementation Notes

You can use a power state template to put your machines into a sleep state or hibernate state.

 

The machines can be put into sleep or hibernate state immediately, or they can be restarted before being left in the desired power state.

Like any other job that is scheduled from the console, the power state job will only work on those target machines that are in a fully powered on state when the job is initiated. Machines that are in a reduced power or powered off state are not affected.

The following table indicates when a sleep or hibernate command will work on a target machine:
