Shutdown computer after idle for a long time
Posted on 2004-08-10
My environment is Windows XP machines running in a Windows 2003 domain. My question is, we have a lot of students that logon do what ever they need to do, logoff, getup and leave the computer class. Now we have a problem where computers stay on for a very long time even though they are not being use. Is there a way to prevent this? I don’t wanna make use of shutting down a computer after a certain time as this is not a time related problem, I can’t determine when I user would wanna make use of a computer. I need to have the computer shutdown when it’s been idling for a long time. If this is a computer setting, can this be done through a GP? If it is additional software that needs to be installed on all computers would I be able to use a GP for this as well?
