User refresh at logon not starting with laptop on battery power. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, using app-v 5.0 sp2 we have a issue that when a laptop is on battery power the user logon refresh is not working.
    user logon refresh is set by app-v policy.

    i found out that this policy creates an scheduled task on the machine, with the condition "start the task only if the computer is on ac power" and that is the reason why it does not refresh on logon on battery power.

    is this by design and Why?

    what is the best solution to avoid this behaviour?

    the only solution i can imagine is creating our own scheduled task by group policy without the condition mentioned above.

    What do you think what is the best way to handle this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

  • I would concur with Aaron's suggestion. In usual circumstances, the assumption is that user's are not connected to corporate networks when running on battery power. This is why the task is set that way by default. While I normally would not recommend overriding the scheduled tasks, in this case it may be necessary.

  • If you create a task via Task Scheduler, the default conditions include only starting the task is the PC is plugged in.

    Therefore I would think that there is no reason for not disabling the setting to get the refresh to occur at logon when on battery power.

  • For metered Connection and power Standby, yes, some transports disable. If you set AllowHighCostLaunch to 1 in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\AppV\Client\Streaming does it help?

  • Switching to allow high cost launch does not help.

  • I've found that overriding the tasks does not work, the conditions are set back by system not long after having implemented the changes :(

  • Create your own custom task, with the same settings. Only change it to also run if on battery
