Computers freeze before reboot. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    The computers in question are XP SP3, with Disk Protect running.  Updates are from a WSUS server.  I update my PC's at night.  I use WOL to wake them and then let SteadyState handle the updates.  After updates some of the PC's have an issue where the PC is on but the monitor is in power save.  Wiggling the mouse brings back the monitor and you can see that the PC was in the process of trying to reboot which it now does to finish the updates.  My understanding is that it's an issue with the screensaver running and when the updates are completed it tries to reboot and hangs.  After reboot you get the black screen with asking if you want to start Windows normally.  This doesn't happen every time and not with every PC.  Any ideas?
