Running servers when they are not needed can waste a considerable amount of energy. This application tells your Amahi server to suspend or power off when its services are not needed.


Amahi Energy Saver regularly scans for connected clients, which are defined in the "monitored host list". If none of these clients is turned on, the system suspends after a configurable period. So, for instance, you may want to add your client PC and your PS3 to the monitored host list. The Amahi Box will then stay up and running as long as client PC and/or PS3 are up and running. However, you might not want to add your home router to the list, as the router is always turned on. With the calendar function one can define scheduled wake ups and periods during which the server shall stay awake no matter what. Amahi Energy Saver also checks shares. As long as shares are accessed, the server does not suspend. If set up to do so, Squeezeboxserver is monitored to prevent suspend while Squeezeboxes are turned on. When the system is to be used again, simply wake it up with WOL (ref. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake-on-LAN). There are many tools to generate WOL packets, and it is even possible to wake your server over the internet (good link: http://www.wakeonlan.me/).
