Before shutting down a thin client enter the ongoing

time wasted waiting for a machine to come back up.



power saved is roughly ;


100 Watts per machine, 16 hours (overnight) times 360 days (ish) = approx 600 KWh.

at 10 cents per KWh, cost per year, per machine, = $ 60.

100 Machines, $ 6000

1,000 Machines, $60,000

20,000 machines, $1.2M
