Power-Saving Mode

By default, Polycom phones are set to enter power-saving mode and turn off the screen after being idle for a certain period of time to conserve energy.

You can determine the period of time that the phone is idle before the screen turns off, and you can set different idle timeouts for office hours and off hours, such as evenings and weekends. When power-saving mode is activated, the phone exits power-saving mode if an event occurs—for example, if there is an incoming call or message. If a screen saver is enabled, power-saving mode still occurs.

You can update the following power-saving settings:
  • Office Hours—When you start work and how long you're in the office each day.
  • Timeouts—The period of time the phone should be idle before the screen turns off.
