Leading North American Energy Company Offers Financial Incentives for British Columbian Customers Using Desktop Authority's Power Management Functionality to Cut Energy Costs

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - ScriptLogic® Corporation,, a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced that BC Hydro, the largest electric utility company in British Columbia, has approved ScriptLogic's Desktop Authority® for use in its Power Smart Product Incentive Program. IT administrators within British Columbia using Desktop Authority's computer power management functionality to cut energy costs will now be eligible for financial incentives from BC Hydro as a reward for their efforts to enable "green computing."

The BC Hydro Power Smart Product Incentive Program is designed to help businesses become more energy efficient and save money. Desktop Authority, ScriptLogic's comprehensive desktop management software, offers power management functionality to help IT administrators save energy costs by establishing power settings and by shutting down inactive machines. IT administrators can easily create, modify or remove Windows power schemes, giving them centralized control over both laptops and desktops. Additionally, Desktop Authority's Inactivity Timer will monitor inactivity and lock, logoff, shutdown or restart desktops as specified by the administrator.

"With ENERGY STAR® compliant PCs and power management software, IT administrators have the tools to make a real positive impact on energy consumption," said Nick Cavalancia, vice president of Windows Management at ScriptLogic. "With eligibility for BC Hydro's prestigious Power Smart Product Incentive Program, our customers will receive an additional incentive as they do their part to lower energy costs."

By implementing power management software, an organization can gain substantial annual savings. Using basic network and PC information, IT administrators can calculate the energy savings of power management by using ScriptLogic's ROI calculator. ScriptLogic has authored a whitepaper, "Lowering Energy Costs with Desktop Authority," detailing the best strategies for enabling power management. Web users can download the whitepaper by visiting
