uint32 RequestPowerStateChange (uint16 PowerState, CIM_ManagedElement ManagedElement, datetime Time, CIM_ConcreteJob Job, datetime TimeoutPeriod)

RequestPowerStateChange defines the desired power state of the managed element, and when the element should be put into that state. The RequestPowerStateChange method has five input parameters and a result code.

  • PowerState indicates the desired power state.
  • ManagedElement indicates the element whose state is set. This element SHOULD be associated to the service using the AssociatedPowerManagementService relationship.
  • Time indicates when the power state should be set, either as a regular date-time value or as an interval value (where the interval begins when the method invocation is received).
  • Job is a reference to the job if started.
  • TimeOutPeriod indicates the maximum amount of time a client is expects the transition to take.

See CIM_PowerStateCapabilities for descriptions of PowerState parameter enumerations.
