salt.modules.win_powercfg

This module allows you to control the power settings of a windows minion via powercfg.

New in version 2015.8.0.

# Set monitor to never turn off on Battery power
salt '*' powercfg.set_monitor_timeout 0 power=dc
# Set disk timeout to 120 minutes on AC power
salt '*' powercfg.set_disk_timeout 120 power=ac
salt.modules.win_powercfg.get_disk_timeout(scheme=None)

Get the current disk timeout of the given scheme

Parameters:scheme (str) --

The scheme to use, leave as None to use the current. Default is None. This can be the GUID or the Alias for the Scheme. Known Aliases are:

  • SCHEME_BALANCED - Balanced
  • SCHEME_MAX - Power saver
  • SCHEME_MIN - High performance
Returns:A dictionary of both the AC and DC settings
Return type:dict

CLI Example:

salt '*' powercfg.get_disk_timeout
salt.modules.win_powercfg.get_hibernate_timeout(scheme=None)

Get the current hibernate timeout of the given scheme

scheme (str):

The scheme to use, leave as None to use the current. Default is None. This can be the GUID or the Alias for the Scheme. Known Aliases are:

  • SCHEME_BALANCED - Balanced
  • SCHEME_MAX - Power saver
  • SCHEME_MIN - High performance
Returns:A dictionary of both the AC and DC settings
Return type:dict

CLI Example:

salt '*' powercfg.get_hibernate_timeout
salt.modules.win_powercfg.get_monitor_timeout(scheme=None)

Returns:A dictionary of both the AC and DC settings
Return type:dict

CLI Example:

salt '*' powercfg.get_standby_timeout
salt.modules.win_powercfg.set_disk_timeout(timeout, power=u'ac', scheme=None)

Set the disk timeout in minutes for the given power scheme

    • ac (AC Power)
    • dc (Battery)
  • scheme (str) --

    The scheme to use, leave as None to use the current. Default is None. This can be the GUID or the Alias for the Scheme. Known Aliases are:

    • SCHEME_BALANCED - Balanced
    • SCHEME_MAX - Power saver
    • SCHEME_MIN - High performance
Returns:

True if successful, otherwise False

Return type:

bool
