This package is a Feature Pack in the category Management. The name of the package as it appears on disk and for use with some command-line tools is WinEmb-PowerManagement.

See the list of optional, supporting packages for additional functionality, such as the Power Options item in Control Panel and support for control of power management by using Group Policy settings.
This package depends upon the Core File System package.
No group dependencies.

The <SystemVolume>\Boot folder, typically C:\Boot, must be added to the File-Based Write Filter (FBWF) Exclusion list for hibernation to work when FBWF is helping to protect a system volume.
