comment Skip new Windows 7 user selection and go to login prompt
Does this change a registry setting? This option is set to "not configured" in Group Policy on the Domain. Getting that changed would require justifying it to the head of IT, which is a pain.

I only have the "S-1-5-18" through "S-1-5-20" keys as well as the five (5) "S-1-5-21" user accounts on this machine. There are no duplicates or ".bak" keys.

comment Wake all sleeping machines on subnet
The whole point of the sleep mode is to try and save power when a machine sits unused. We're trying to maximize our power savings while still allowing for a nightly shutdown and restart. At worst, we power on the S5 machines and then put them back to sleep a few minutes later.

I have WoL enabled on the network cards so they will turn on if I send them a magic packet.

I don't see the "Change the way users log on/off" option. This is a domain machine so I don't know if that makes a difference.

comment Wake all sleeping machines on subnet
I'm looking for a way to wake up only sleeping systems, not shutdown systems. I believe that's the difference between systems in S3 and S5 power states. I'm looking for something that will only target sleeping (S3) systems.

comment Powershell .lnk deployment/syncing - lnk description attribute
I am trying to build a way to sync our favorites from our network drive to our local machine. We are probably going to be using folder redirection to make it work.

This would probably work as a last resort. My only problem with using permissions is that your tracking info can be easily destroyed by a permission reset. Something that our company does for some reason... In other places, this would probably work.

It looks like that in windows 7, and possibly Vista, they added meta data support for files to where you can add descriptions and such. In that case, I can simply add data to these fields to make it work. Thanks for the input.
