Display is machine was shutdown/slept/hibernated vs. just simply offline

jhardwick 2 years ago updated 1 year ago 5

When a normal shutdown/reboot or sleep/hibernation is initiated it would be nice if SC would show that instead of simply showing the machine as offline -- something like Hibernated 25m ago, or Shutdown 25min ago.

Hello,

After consideration we've determined your request isn't feasible. There isn't a way to identify what specific action (i.e. reboot, sleep, etc.) put the system in an offline state.

Check with the Automate team as I'm pretty sure they do it -- or at least used to.  I can't find it in the new interface.


If a machine went to sleep for example vs. shutdown it would show "Standby on date / time" as "Uptime" in in the legacy computer screen.


I know there are system events called before a machine can sleep or shutdown that can be trapped.

I am with jhardwick on this. This would be a good feature to be able to determine from the panel.

How would this information be used? What are you gaining?

There are numerous times that we want to know why a machine is offline... did the user shut it down against instructions when they left, did it just go to sleep or absent any provided reason -- did it just lose Internet... was a reboot initiated and it just hasn't came back online yet, etc.
