1E’s latest software product, NightWatchman, allows you to centrally and intelligently switch off PCs every night.

NightWatchman 2.0 enables administrators to shut down and turn off PCs from a central location. By automating this task every night, organisations can save on electricity and administration – while aiding the environment by reducing emissions of CO2, which can be as high as one tonne per PC per year.

Shutting down a large number of PCs is usually a complex logistical operation. Even though asked, employees often forget to switch their PCs off or may not be around to power their machines down. NightWatchman allows the control of all aspects of shut down and will even save open documents so that users will never lose their data.

When NightWatchman is used in conjunction with Wake-On-LAN products like SMSWakeUp, administrators can centrally control the power state of all PCs in the organisation. So when necessary, software can be installed on all PCs and at night most PCs can be safely shut down.

Sumir Karayi, Managing Director of 1E, said : “NightWatchman is an excellent product, it saves money and reduces environmental damage. With its financial savings and environmental benefits, this is a product which all companies should be looking at.”

Rod Trent, Analyst of, said : “1E's NightWatchman is a great solution that allows you to manage the state of your computers. By installing a simple client piece, you can use a standard MMC console to shutdown, logoff, or restart a single computer; or, even better, all computers for a specified time and date. And, if you regularly distribute software to your workstations overnight, you know how frustrating it can be when an installation fails because of open applications. NightWatchman makes sure you have the ability to REALLY manage the state of the computer by providing support for computers with APM and ACPI support and those computers that do not”.

NightWatchman is another product of quality, based on organisational needs. The ideas behind the software are based on real life experiences of 1E’s own top consultants.

NightWatchman 2.0, is now available from 1E and its selected resellers. It can be used with Windows NT/2000/XP.
