    Toast notifications were so bad that I was tasked to creates a windows XP style popup for when passwords were about to expire. NOBODY noticed the 5-second toast long enough to read them or care about reading them. Users thought "It went away so it fixed itself".

    I created something like this using scheduled tasks and PowerShell.
    It was a nightmare and took months. (Lots of scenarios to deal with)
    We have a set of scheduled tasks force a reboot on workstations every week (Sleeping or not)
    For laptops, we nag the user at logon, screen saver unlock and RDP connection if a reboot hadn't occurred after 2 weeks.

    Prior to this we had tonnes of machines that updates wouldn't stick because nobody would reboot. We had 2 guys that hadn't rebooted in over a year!

    I bet they will have to make Win-R and explorer.exe support $variables first.

    Why not also make this available for detection scripts. Getting the name of the application that the detection script is for would save me lots of work.

    Don't bother. Wrap all the MSIs using something like this http://psappdeploytoolkit.com/
    Let the script handle all the logic you want.
    And let the script report success or failure to SCCM.

    Why not also add a [Update ALL my apps NOW!!!] button.

    We have users who come to the office for a limited time but they have to leave their laptops over night to make sure all apps are installed.

    For those waiting for this to materialize, you might be able to use a wrapper (http://psappdeploytoolkit.com/) to do this.
