TCL Script to shut down Power to IP Phone

Community, does anyone know of a way to shut down the power to IP Phones lets say every evening and weekends to conserve power? Just thinking green!!

Would a TCL script do the job or are Cisco looking into ways of doing this in the future?

TIA.

Re: TCL Script to shut down Power to IP Phone

For anyone who may be interested I got a couple of replies back from the Network Infrastructure forum:

http://forums.cisco.com/eforum/servlet/EEM?page=eem&fn=script&scriptId=1041 - 2 scripts that will shut down inline power on CAT 6500 - Thanks to Mark Yeates

Als0, Andrew Prince, uses a telent program (http://www.winsite.com/bin/Info?500000000873) and runs the following:

logon at 7pm on Friday and issue the below commands:-

interface range g1/0/1 1/0/48

power inline never

this shuts power off to all the switch ports that have phones attached.

Then Monday morning a 7am another script is run:-

interface range g1/0/1 1/0/48

no power inline never
