This might be a silly question but we rolled out a large batch of VoIP Phones. Some due to port shortages have been bridged and PoE turned on. Management right now on the switch is tedious and we are debating turning PoE on for all ports so we can ease the burden of bridging new phones as they come in.
The question is does keeping PoE turned on for a port that links to a device (i.e. a desktop) that doesn't need it bad in any way for the device? Is there any chance of power disruptions or other ill-effects?
