Retrieve the Idle Timeout Setting

The IdleWakeTimeOut parameter defines the minimum time value, in minutes, that Intel AMT will be operable after waking up from a sleep power state. This is also the length of time that Intel AMT remains fully powered after the platform enters a sleep or off state. This timer is restarted whenever Intel AMT is servicing requests.

The following steps describe how to retrieve the idle timeout parameter.

1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_GeneralSettings, where the “InstanceID” key equals “Intel(r) AMT: General Settings” by invoking AMT_GeneralSettings.Get.

2.  Examine AMT_GeneralSettings.IdleWakeTimeout to see the setting.

$idleWakeTimeout =$generalSettingsInstance.GetProperty("IdleWakeTimeout")
