Reboot Finction not working
The reboot function seems to shutdown computers. Guess who has to turn them all on again in the morning.

Damn. Sorry mate.
Can you send me the current setting out of the event log? Restart the service and it will dump them as an entry while it starts. There is also a debug entry as it triggers the shutdown after counting down, where it calls shutdown.exe - that would also help.

It's ok, I've found it Under the right conditions, it was simultaneously shutting down and rebooting, and obviously Windows just shut down.

Sounds like you need to integrate a PXE boot on that.

I have a WOL solution in the pipeline too, but it's nowhere near ready for production use yet.

What you really want to make it "future proof" is to use AMT/vPro - much more robust than WoL in the way it crosses subnets etc but also just a bit more difficult to get going.

Surely hardware that supports that is a little less prevelant though..?

"big" manufacturers are doing it on anything they call a business PC. In the past year I've worked with Dell, Viglen and HP equipment and they all offer AMT pretty much as standard.
