The Configuration Manager 2007 R3 Power Settings report displays an aggregated list of power settings used by computers in the specified collection. For each power setting, the possible power modes, values, and units are displayed, together with a count of the number of computers that use those values. This report can be used during the monitoring phase of power management to help the administrator understand the existing power settings used by computers in the site and to help plan optimal power settings to be applied using a power management plan. The report is also useful when troubleshooting to validate that power settings were correctly applied.

The settings displayed are collected from client computers during hardware inventory. Depending on the time at which hardware inventory runs, settings from applied peak or non-peak power plans might be collected.
The information in this topic applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 R3.
