An Energy Saver profile enforces the settings for when the computer should sleep and configure wake options.

To create an Energy Saver profile: 

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles and select Add. Select Apple macOS, and then select Device Profile, since this profile is only applicable to the entire device.
  2. Configure the profile's General settings.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  3. Select the Energy Saver payload.
  4. Configure Energy Saver settings, including: 
    Setting Description

  5. Select Save & Publish when you are finished to push the profile to devices.  If you push a laptop profile to a desktop device, or vice versa, the profile is ignored by the receiving device.
