Is there a bat script that will check whether a pc on a network is turned on, or logged in, and perform other bat operations if it is on?

I'll give you a hint:
in the bat file, run ping command; if it return results, then the PC is on, otherwise it's off.
to check if is logged in, check the script in this page and modify it to your needs

That would look like this (replace the IP in this example 192.168.1.1 with machine you want to check):

@echo off

rem Check to see if machine is on.
echo 192.168.1.1
ping -n 2 192.168.1.1 >NUL 2>NUL

if errorlevel 1 goto down

rem ##########################
rem Insert the code for doing work when the machine is on between this line and 'goto end" line
 
goto end


:down
  rem The machine down
  echo It's not on

:end

Open in new window
