142: Network Card Power Saving and Voicemail Servers

30th June 2006 - Full PDF Text Version


Microsoft Windows XP and other Microsoft operating systems can take advantage of a number of power saving measures to reduce energy costs. These power saving measures involve reducing the power supplied to various hardware components, usually after a period of inactivity. These components include the processor, hard drive, network cards, and monitor. These power saving measures are inappropriate for use in a server environment such as for Avaya IP Office VoiceMail Pro as they can cause delay in the Voicemail system response. It is advisable to disable these features on any PC that has Avaya IP Office server applications installed.
