Win32_PowerManagementEvent vbscript sample code

The foundations for Manageability in Windows is Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI; formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).

ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples. You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself. The Win32_PowerManagementEvent WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_PowerManagementEvent WMI class represents power management events resulting from power state changes. These state changes are associated with either the Advanced Power Management (APM) or the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) system management protocols.
