Run Tests in Power Mode

When you run a manual test in Sprinter, you need to decide if you need to run your test in Power Mode .

The following table summarizes the Power Mode features to help you decide if you need to run your test in Power Mode:

Feature

Description

Application

You must define an application for your test to use Power Mode. Defining an application for your test also enables Sprinter to install, uninstall, or restart the application automatically when you start your test.

Sprinter saves settings and other user-specific configurations and applies this information the next time you run Sprinter.

Many Power Mode configurations are associated with their specific application.

Because you define application for your test, all tests have the same defined application will share the same Power Mode configuration.
