WOUTemp power scheme

By the way, have you tried setting your display timeout to 1 minutes for 100% of the time? I can't imagine having to jiggle the mouse every minute or so if I'm just reading something on the screen where the reading process takes more than a minute.

Such timeout is not meant for general use. Reading something is completely different than installing updates in an unattended manner.


Correct. When I'm installing updates, I'm doing it in an attended manner. Which makes it more like reading something -- every few minutes I'm reading the output to see how far the update process has gotten and whether it has finished. Granted I have to jiggle the mouse within 15 minutes so the computer doesn't go into lockout but that's a lot better than having to do so in less than sixty seconds. And I may be updating two, three or perhaps even five computers at a time. So having the option to disable this option is great news to me.

Without the new option, it would be like as if a vice president at a company mandated a display timeout of 1 minute because that person thought it would be a good idea. I don't get the impression that you would appreciate it if you worked at such a company.

So having the option to disable this option is great news to me. Having worked on programs in the past, I would try to keep in mind when adding new options whether it's good for everybody or just select customers. If the latter, I would make sure that the program would default to behaving normally but allow those who want the alternative to be able to change to that alternative.

Thanks for the all the help.

I'm still wondering why one would want to see how update process is going having Auto Recall option checked. It is beyond me.

Again, the power scheme with 1 minute timeout is applied even without selecting Auto Recall.

Like watching a HDD defragmenting in the good old times it's still relaxing to lean back and watch someone working hard for you nearly for free ;)

Hi.

Yes, this is because WOU doesn't know about the standby/hibernate settings of the current scheme.

Anyway: Is everyone satisfied now with the default of one minute and the new /monitoron switch?

II'm sure I would like it. But where one can download that version (r1025)? On http://www.wsusoffline.net/ I see version 11.6.1 which I have installed already.

Edit: Done. Trac is the answer http://trac.wsusoffline.net/trac.fcgi/browser/trunk?rev=1026&format=zip

Perhaps because I don't have Auto Recall checked? I can't use it because the computers I patch have a mandated logon banner which prevents the Auto Recall from working properly. Hopefully that explains why I wish to monitor the progress -- so I know if the computer is ready to be rebooted by just glancing at the screen every few minutes. Granted with a screen saver timeout of 15 minutes, I do have to go over and jiggle the mouse within 15 minutes so the screen saver doesn't kick in and hide the screen anyway. But it was minutes rather than seconds.

I use this amazing software in a manner where it is inconvenient for the screen to shut off after a minute of inactivity. You can change the power configuration by \client\cmd and locating DoUpdate.cmd open with notepad++ and locate line 314 change the 1 at the end of the line to 0 and the screen will never go black. Or you can change it to any other number you would prefer.

Code: Select all
for %%i in (monitor) do (
  for %%j in (ac dc) do %SystemRoot%\System32\powercfg.exe -X -%%i-timeout-%%j 0

@TheUser:
Although you're right that it can be changed, there's no need to do it. Just wait for the new release or use the "release" from the trunk as posted by zimon above.
