    Monitor Standby when idle only on logon screen

    To save the school some pennies I am trying to achieve the following... turn off the monitors, put them in standby when no one is logged onto a computer after 5 minutes or so.

    We have Impero but it only has the option of turning of the monitors after so many minutes regardless if a user is logged on or not.

    Does anyone know a way of achieving this? I have played around with Power Options in Windows for a while and with registry keys but the settings seem to apply for the whole computer instead of just the logon screen which is a pain.

    Cheers everyone

    We use PowerMAN by DATASynergy.
    Is saving us a fortune.

    Idle PC's are shutdown after set time, depending on user level. PC's at the CTRL+ALT+DEL screen are turned off if no one logs on after a few minutes.

    Thanks @kennysarmy do you have any idea of the cost of the product before I go down the trial route?

    Cheers

    We paid around £1,400, which is a one-off cost.
    There is a small annual charge to host the stats on their webservers.... ~ £200

    We went from the following stats:

    User activity = 41%
    User inactivity = 24%
    No logon = 35%

    TO:

    User activity = 80%
    User inactivity = 12%
    No logon = 9%

    We beieve the software will pay for itself within 6-9 months.
