    Green Fog and Windows 7

    has anybody seen issues with the Automatic shutdown if nobody is logged in feature of Fog (green fog)

    I am finding that if logged in via RDP then Fog will shutdown the machine thinking nobody is logged it.

    Never had this problem with XP but seems to be happening on the win 7 machines.

    The client service was only written to run on xp, I believe the next release of FOG is meant to have the service tweaked to work better with Windows 7.

    I knew that but thought somebody may have found a fix - atm its just the it team and 1 other who have win 7 so for the time being the client is disabled.

    just thought they might have been a work around.

    I think the problem is that when using Windows 7 the service isn't associated with the desktop session that you are logged in with. Apparently if you use snap-ins you can see evidence of it trying to install / notify in a new desktop session. I'm pretty sure that .30 is meant to address this.
