dxpower - controls energy saving features on systems that can be power
The Power Manager application, dxpower, is used to maintain and manage the
power management features on computers and peripherals that can be power
Power Manager lets you place monitors in three power saving modes: Standby,
Suspend, or Off and lets you selectively spin down inactive disks to reduce
power consumption. You also can specify when you want power management
features to be active: always, never, or only at a specific time of day.
Privileged (root) users have the capability to set system wide power
management values. Non-privileged users set power management values on
their monitors for the current log in session.
The Power Manager application can be invoked from:
1. The CDE Application Manager
2. Application Group: System_Admin
3. System Admin Subgroup: DailyAdmin
If you are not using CDE, start Power Manager from the command line:

An alternative to using the Power Manager application is to set and control
