    Just be careful if you've got teacher laptops. Many of ours are away from the network for more then 60 days at a time.

    @K.C.Leblanc -If your running Windows Vista or 7 clients KMS can help with this, ours are set to reactivate at least once every two months. If they haven't been connected to the network in that time either they don't work there anymore or shouldn't and so the laptop locks out untill it is reconnected to the network.

    Just out of curiosity do you have to put this on the AD settings or just manually on every pc?
