One type of Green Computing focuses on reducing power consumption of computers. Specialized software like 1E/Nightwatchman aids in reducing the power consumption of desktop computers by placing them in a low power state when not in use. This thesis describes the implementation of 1E/Nightwatchman power management software on two thousand desktop computers at the City of Tulsa. It shows the method used to predict power savings of $100,000.00 per year and compares the prediction to the actual savings after one year of operation.
