Turns out that Server 2003 does not have this feature but Server 2008 can do it. We found this tech doc with more details: "technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee524015(WS.10).aspx";. Our brilliant solution is to upgrade to 2008 and go from there. So this solution should work, but not on server 2003.

The "Always use classic logon" only applies when the machine is not part of a domain if the description in gpedit is correct. These are Domain computers. Thanks for the suggestion though.

It turns out that the print server is not a Domain controller but a "member server". My server tech tells me that even though the Print Operators group is on the server, it doesn't actually do anything.

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.

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.

Added clairifcation that this only applies to sleeping machines.
