I'm wondering how people are handling the Kace Appliance patching when a computer is in sleep mode? For instance Windows 7 machines that fall asleep and don't properly get kace patches.

There's an option under "Patch Schedule" that will allow you to checkmark "Run on next connection if offline." Basically this means that the next time the computer checks in, it will go ahead and run the patching process, even if it's not on the particular day, or along the normal schedule.


I've given it an interval of 15 minutes to make sure that anyone who needs to get the patches will have time to get fully booted and normal before it runs.

  • Ditto - right down to the "delay by 15 minutes" part. ^_^

Do you not have the capability to use Wake-On-Lan (WOL), in your environment?  If you do, the K1000 can be configured to send out WOL to your machines prior to the scheduled start time of your Patch Schedule.  r2

  • If the machines are asleep then WOL won't help. WOL only wakes up machines that are off or in hibernate, not sleep mode.
