How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Wake on LAN by maintenance window start time not deployment time

WOL packets are sent when a required deployment's time to install is hit. It would be nice if we could also set this to wake up machines by maintenance windows, or have a maintenance window that wakes up computers. What is the use of waking up a computer at the deployment start time of 7PM if the computer's maintenance window doesn't start until 10PM?

    This x1000. Maintenance windows are essentially useless if the PC's are never on during the time of the maintenance window. There should more options for Wake On Lan within SCCM, especially in regards to maintenance windows.
