When devices are continuously being used in workplaces, they are bound to run out of charge sooner than expected. Features have been implemented in SureLock to reduce the battery consumption of Android devices. 

Options to consider to achieve this are mentioned below.
1. Keep CPU OFF: Sensible use of the CPU by turning it ON or OFF whenever required can reduce the consumption of device battery power. The steps are mentioned below.

i.  Launch SureLock Password Prompt by tapping on the screen 5 times within 3 seconds. Enter the SureLock Settings password

ii. On SureLock Admin Settings screen, tap on SureLock Settings

iii. On SureLock Settings screen, tap on Timeout Settings

iv. On the Timeout Settings screen, tap and uncheck Keep CPU On option. Tap on Done to complete

Once done, when the device is in suspended mode, the device will not keep the CPU running.

2. Power Savings settings: There are a set of features under this option to reduce the consumption of device battery power by controlling the device brightness. The steps are mentioned below.

Once done, the device will go into the power-saving mode as soon as the device goes into the suspended mode.
