Having real issues with Trickle feed (CC4) on laptops? Will Wake on LAN help?
CC4's new trickle feed feature is giving me headaches! We have a lot of laptops and the trickle feed doesn't reach them because they are off- so that when they start up they are slow, lose printers, have issues surrounding log ons.
We are considering "converting" our existing trolleys to access the network, and allow the wake on lan utility to work to allow the trickle feed. Does anyone currently use one of these on an RM network? Does it work well?
Any help much appreciated!!

We have three lots of CC4 laptops here. How much software are you trickle feeding? Do you have a backlog of tasks to complete? When we moved to CC4 I made the mistake of building the whole network to package build and then assiging all software to the locations and then moving stations into those locations. It was too much work for the network. Wake on LAN only works on wired computers not wireless. You may need to take some laptops away, plug them in to a netwokr socket somewhere and make sure that the software on them is up-to-date and they connect and log on and off without issues. If you are having problems then you need to check for issues on your server. If you are having connectivity issues then your wireless setup needs looking at.
Trickle feed kicks in when computers have idle time. Thefore the allocation of packages (update or software) will not affect logon times, or the mapping of drives and printers. Do you knwo if packages are actually installing? Try cancelling outstanding tasks and try just assiging one package to one computer where you know there are no tasks going on. Does the tick go from grey to green in the assignment overview after a minute or so?
