Hi all,

Does anyone out there force thier users to logoff at a specified time but ensuring their work is saved?

I would like some suggestions from you if you have experience in doing this please. To get the points you should provide as detailed an answer as possible.

Thanks

No, this is not possible... none of the programs I know of implement something like an autosave if the machine is going down.
You could implement "suspend to disk" which saves the machines state to harddisk, with open programs and everything. You hardware must support it and you should have Win XP. Still some apps don't like to be suspended and behave erraticaly when resumed, so you need to do some testing.

Hope it helps,

Michael
