Most modern computers have a variety of power settings that allow the computer to conserve energy when it’s not being used. Several of these energy saving features will cause a Virtual TimeClock Server computer to stop responding to the TimeClock client computers. The following article will help you properly configure your power settings to ensure uninterrupted communication.
How Power Settings Impact Virtual TimeClock
In Virtual TimeClock Network Edition, all time clock data is stored on one central computer that runs the TimeClock Server program. The TimeClock Server “serves” (stores and distributes) time clock information to each of the individual TimeClock clients, allowing users to punch in, punch out, check timecards, etc. The server to client connection means that when there are disruptions to the TimeClock Server, the clients will lose communication and be unable to perform standard time clock functions.
