How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Application/Package install at shutdown or startup

We can now update at shutdown/startup but we need to be able to do the same for Application/Package Deployment.

Some of our deployments require browsers or mail clients to be closed and getting the users to do this voluntarily is almost impossible.

    Agreed. We cannot force reboots in our environment and this would allow more flexibility with deployments instead of using startup and shutdown scripts in GPO. BIOS updates specifically would benefit from this. BIOS updates require BitLocker to be suspended and we cannot suspend BitLocker, run the BIOS update and leave the system in an unprotected state until the user reboots.

    Fantastic idea, I currently have issues deploying Flash to our Windows 7 environment, as it failing when Flash is in use. Currently I have to deploy when NO user is logged in which takes forever.
