    It seems to be a reasonable complaint to me, if you can't clock in until you've logged in to your PC, then your having to boot up the PC on your own time, and if that is taking 15 minutes it's reasonably to be upset.

    Well maybe they should switch to SSDs!
    That will reduce dramatically start up and shutdown times

    Get yourself a plug in timer and set your pc to turn on after power failure, use a script to login automatically.

    Voila time card fraud at its finest.

    These pc linked time card systems are just stupid, they obviously don't trust their employees.
