Sleep issues & keeping all the drivers up to date on all your clients PC's?
We are struggling with random computers around the site (from our 800) that users find in semi sleep mode...I say semi sleep as the lights on the front indicate it should be on and working, all the fans are running but there is no VGA output and the PC is unpingable. In normal sleep mode the power light would pulse.
The supplier of our PC's glibbly said - you need to update all the drivers on your PC's.....
With 800 computers on site, it's going to take months to send a junior techie out to every PC to check all the drivers are updated!!
The only way we can get the PC's operational again is to either pull the plug, which sometimes works, or in most cases we have to open the case and reseat the RAM and then it's OK after that.
The problem seems random and sporadic so we can't even target specific motherboards or monitors or operating systems etc.
Anyone any ideas or suggestions?
