Computer Power Management

The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan ("Ross") has established computer power settings to achieve energy cost savings across the enterprise for all managed desktop and laptop computers. Power management is a feature of computers, monitors, printers and copiers that turns off the power or switches the system to a low-power state when inactive in order to save energy. Power management becomes even more important across an enterprise such as Ross due to the significant amount of energy being used the costs associated with that energy use.

Connecting Devices to the Network

The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan ("Ross") has expended great effort to create a high-performance network environment that is robust, secure and convenient for all members of the community. A computer network is a shared resource in any organization. Decisions about how best to administer and extend network services need to be based on the needs of the entire community. As more consumer devices become network aware, such as wireless printers, dual-mode cell phones, portable media and others as they evolve, they have the potential to disrupt and degrade a computer network. This policy defines the types of devices members of the Ross community can connect to the network.
