How View applies the configured power policy to automated pools depends on whether a View desktop is available.

A desktop in an automated pool is considered available when it meets the following criteria:

Is active

Does not contain a user session

Is not assigned to a user

The View Agent service running on the desktop confirms the availability of the desktop to View Connection Server.

When you configure an automated pool, you can specify the minimum and maximum number of virtual machines that must be provisioned and the number of spare desktops that must be kept powered on and available at any given time.
