Re: [Condor-users] Condor with power saving PCs

Dear All,

I've spent quite a bit of time recently getting Condor to work
with our Win XP pool on PCs that employ power saving (that is
they shutdown after 30 min of inactivity if no one is logged on).
This was a good deal more fiddly than I first anticipated. If anyone
is interested I'll post the details here. With full economic costing
coming in in UK academia I think this could be a growing concern.

We've had some questions about this in the past. Details would be welcome. How do you get the PCs to come back on when a job is available? How does Condor distinguish between a machine that is power saving and a machine that is really off?
