  1. Allow an option to wake up laptop computers

    With ConfigMgr you have an option to wake up desktop computers on a specific time. The similar option is needed for laptops. This is especially important in school environment where student laptop are in carts. Student take a laptop from a cart and return it after the class. The problem is that you cannot update those devices when they are in the cart, because they are laptops. Please add an option (that is not selected by default) to allow wake up also laptops.

    • Add options to control power management by days of the week

      Add options to control power management by days of the week.

      For example our organizations peek hours would be between 7am and 5pm M-F, it would be great to put all the PC's in a power saving mode all day Sat. and Sun.

      • Change Wake-Up Proxy functionality

        SCCM should change the Wake-Up proxy functionality so that it doesn't cause MAC flapping. IBM BigFix and IE are able to use WOL forwarders which are very reliable, and they don't cause issues on networks that use Port Security. The Wake-Up proxy idea is great, but in practice it falls short because many large networks just can't use it. It's incredibly important to have a reliable WOL tool, and Microsoft really needs to step their game up in this aspect.

        • Enable right click WOL a device from inside the console

          Allow the built in use of WOL, and right click to wake up a machine or a collection at anytime. Also fix ConfigMgr's native WOL technology to work on common network infrastructure (no Mac-Flapping.)

            • Automatic shutdown of computers when WOL is used

              When WOL is used to install software updates during non business hours, it would be great if there is an option to shutdown computers which were woke up by WOL only post installation of software updates/application, so this will avoid using third part software's to initiate shutdown.
