Hi

I have been asked to look at implementing power management on our desktops to sleep computers on a Friday evening and then script a wake up on Monday morning.

Im sure this is possible but if anyone has a link to a good guide then please let me know.

The trickier part is that as part of this users must be able to wake up there machines on an individual basis over the weekend should the be required to dial in and work. We do not want to exclude these people from the power management policy as most users could potentially dial in at some point on a weekend.

Is there a script or tool that will give us this capability?

Thanks

Look up Wake on Lan.  You may have to enable it in your BIOS settings.  There are tools to send the "Magic Packet" and wake the system remotely.  You may need to set up a system on the local subnet to send the packets, depending on how your network switches are set up.  Download the WoL tool

You should also be able to configure a group policy directive to automatically wake all the computers up every morning, or just Monday morning and set it to sleep too.

You can run the shutdown command to manually shutdown remote systems.
shutdown /m \\computer  /s /d p:1:1
