I wanted to know if there was a way to create a kbox script that will only run on a computer if it is logged off. The situation is that I will be implementing Kbox Patching for Windows XP machines on our network and some of these computers run 24/7. I want to WOL all shutdown computers running a patching job and have the job end at a specific time. Sometime after the patching job is complete, I want to have the machine shutdown the computer but only if the computer is in a logged off state. If the computer is logged on I don't want it to shutdown via this script. Any ideas on how to create a kbox script or know of a different way to accomplish my goals would be great.

I can't believe this post is this old and no one ever followed up and that I can't find dozens of other posts asking this question.   In any case, I think I finally figured out a way, at least it appears to have just worked on a test script.

Verify the process explorer.exe is not running.

and only execute the script if that is true.

I guess I'm more than a little baffled as to why there isn't a simple checkbox for the option to only run a script when no user is logged in.
