    Shutdownertron - Force?

    Hi All,

    Have deployed Shutdownertron recently - have to say it is brilliant. Love how it is so easy to deploy and manage centrally from a GPO.

    However - we have our teacher machines lock automatically after a certain amount of inactivity - which means that when Shutdownertron tries to shut them down - it can't - as it doesn't pass the force command on.

    The teacher machines really were our target audience for shutdownertron - they are the main culprits for leaving machines on! Is there any news on a new version? Or is there anything else out there that is as easy to use and manageable centrally?

    Previously we used a script, run as a scheduled task from one of the servers, however it is becoming very difficult to manage with 500 odd computers on the network - each requiring a separate entry in the script. Have also tried TaskForce CO2 - however this still requires a lot of management and is a pain having to install the clients from the console. Didn't think there were that many improvements from PowerOut either, except for reporting which we don't need.

    Thanks!
    Mee.
