re available and ready to be patched at any time allowing you to fully automate routine maintenance and software/ patch distribution.   

As the global market leader, NightWatchman Enterprise is the most comprehensive PC power management solution.

Safe Shutdown

NightWatchman’s user-friendly approach means productivity is never impacted. User data is always saved whenever a PC is powered down and will detect and defer shutdown if a user is still active.

Accurate Reporting with Credible Savings Predictions

Using actual machine make and model, power consumption figures and local energy tariffs reveals the highly accurate picture of energy use, carbon emissions and costs by department, building or region. The accuracy of savings are further enhanced by using multiple baselines for a before and after measure of energy consumption. 

*New* PC Estate Profiler

A unique new feature – the PC Estate Profiler – further drives down energy consumption and identifies hardware waste. By monitoring hardware utilization NightWatchman identifies unused PCs providing the ability to safely decommission them. In addition, it gives visibility into locations of those PCs enabling organizations to not only reallocate unused PCs, but also the associated desk space. 

Automatically wake and patch every PC

WakeUp uses Wake-on-LAN – to reliably and instantly wake up single or multiple PCs at any time. This enables you to ensure that PCs are powered on and available when users arrive for work, for support after hours, after a power cut, or for distribution of high priority security patches. NightWatchman and WakeUp together provide 100% patch success even out-of-hours.
Web WakeUp

Web WakeUp enables users to remotely wake their own PC (or multiple PCs) for access at any time through a customizable web portal or an iPhone/ iPad app. Especially useful for travelling or telecommuting users. It enables users to wake up their own PC for remote access or can wake up PCs across an entire floor/ building ready for use when users arrive at their desks.
Proven savings

Average energy savings of $36 (NZ$27.32) is proven to be the conservative savings in New Zealand, per computer per year to offset PC power management software costs within 12 months.

In the past as many as 60 percent of Ford’s PC users haven’t shut their PCs off at the end of the day, resulting in wasted energy. Going forward, we’ll be able to manage PC power consumption more efficiently while minimizing disruptions during the working day.” Keith Forte, Ford Motor Company
More than nine years ago, 1E became the first company to address the issue of energy waste caused by leaving PCs on overnight and essentially created the global market for IT power management.
