Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Emberstrip PC+ work?
Your Emberstrip PC+ is designed to power down your computers and shut off peripheral devices after a prescribed period of inactivity, placing them in sleep mode.

What should I do if there are certain devices I don't wish to be governed by the Embertec PC+
If there are any devices you do not wish to be governed by the Emberstrip PC+, plug them into a black lined 'always on' Emberstrip outlet.

How will I know when a shutdown is about to occur?
Just before a shutdown is to occur, an on-screen message will appear, advising you that a shutdown is imminent.

How do I override a shutdown?
To override a shutdown, simply move the mouse or press any key.

How do I wake up my devices once a shutdown has occurred?
To wake up your devices after a shutdown has occurred, you can simply move the mouse or press any key on the keyboard. For laptops with a docking station you can press the power button on the dock.
