User Interface Elements in Power Control of Electronic Devices Employed in Office/Consumer Environments
|Publication Date:||8 December 2004|
This standard covers the user interface for the power status control of electronic devices that ordinary people commonly interact with in their work and home lives, including, but not limited to, office equipment and consumer electronics. Key elements are terms, symbols, and indicators.
This standard does not specify maximum power levels, address safety issues, or cover internal mechanisms or interfaces for industrial devices.
The purpose of this standard is to accomplish a similarity of experience of power controls across all electronic devices so that users will find them easier to use and be more likely to use power management features that save energy.
