The Configuration Manager 2007 R3 Power Computer Activity report displays a graph showing the following activity for a specified collection over a specified period:

This report is used during the monitoring and planning and enforcement stages to help you understand the alignment between computer activity, monitor activity and user activity over a 24 hour period. If you run the report over a number of days then the data is aggregated over this period. This report can help you to determine typical business (peak) and nonbusiness (non-peak) hours for a selected collection to help you decide when to apply configured power management plans.

The graph shows time periods where a computer might be turned on, but there is no user activity. Consider applying more restrictive power settings during these times to save on the power costs of computers that are turned on, but are not being used. A computer is counted as being active if there has been computer, user or monitor activity for one minute or more for a displayed hour on the graph. If a computer is not reporting power management data, it will not be included in the Power Computer Activity report.

The information in this topic applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 R3.
