View Full Version : Power Off/On of serer

My thoughts exactly... You would have to give the server some serious
permissions to let it completely shut the server down... I wouldn't want
that and doubt that most other users would either.

You could build a very inexpensive low power computer to use as a server
that would probably use less power if you left it on 24/7 than a 60 watt
light bulb.

Not likely, it would have some nasty security potential. If you want to
consume less power, you should put your server on a low-power computer (say,
Mini-ITX) and configure it to spin the drives down to sleep when they're not
being used.
