  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Processor Power Management

    Include in SCCM's power management options the ability to set processor performance. I am currently doing power management through SCCM and I needed to use the GPO to set this configuration.

  6. 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.

  7. Create the abilty to WOL individual or multiple selections and selected device collections.

    WOL should be a basic function in SCCM. You should have the ability to select a single device as well as multiple devices or collections to Wake a system to perform some task like software installation, image deployment, or even establishing a remote session. We are currently evaluating SCCM 1806 and find it discouraging that WOL abilities are not there. Thank you for your consideration.
