Is embedded on standby when not in use possible?



  • i was just wondering is it possible to actually make pfsense make alix to go in standby when no traffic is noticed to save power as well as reduce heat emission?



  • No. And also, why?
    Is the alix not lowpower enough?
    (we're talking here about 10W)
    Letting your light turned on for 4 hours uses up more energy than letting the ALIX run a day….



  • Huh….you mean that you enter the url and wait 1 minute before even knowing there is connection!!
    I do not think that is something for a firewall but you can always run powerd on you box, i do not think its shipped with pfSense though cpufreq(4) is.
