Our classrooms are shutdown at night. Also, all desktop machines (staff
and students) now switch the monitor off after 5 minutes of inactivity!

So, please, any guidance etc would be useful.

Can I suggest you write it all up and publish some web pages/wiki? This
way this Condor Community can have info with more longevity. (Yes, I
know about archives, but you know what people are like when told to
search them!).

And, yes, FEC is going to be a huge concern ... and of course, you do
pronounce the TLA like Father Ted, don't you? ;-)
