Known Issues with System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3 Beta

This section provides the most up-to-date information about issues with Configuration Manager 2007 R3 Beta. These issues do not appear in the product documentation, and in some cases may contradict existing product documentation. Whenever possible, these issues will be addressed in later releases.

Configuration Manager Clients Do Not Enter Sleep Mode When a Power Plan is Applied

There are known issues that might prevent a Configuration Manager 2007 R3 client from going into sleep mode even when a power plan has been successfully applied on the client. For example, the following might prevent a client from entering sleep mode:

  • A process on the client computer is busy.
  • External USB devices are connected to the computer which prevents it from entering sleep mode.
  • Generic video drivers are installed on the computer.
  • The computer does not support sleep states, or the ability to sleep is not enabled in the computer BIOS.

Setting the Lid Close Action to Shut Down on Computers Running Windows XP is Not Supported

If you apply a power plan setting the Lid close action to shut down to computers running Windows XP, the computer will not shut down when the lid is closed. This is because Windows XP power management does not support the Lid close action.

Configuration Manager clients do not enter sleep mode when a power plan is applied.


The Computer Does Not Wake Up if Wakeup Time is applied in a Power Plan

If WakeUp timers are disabled in the operating system, then power plans that set the Wakeup time value will not wake the computer from sleep.

WORKAROUND    Enable Wakeup timers in the client computer operating system. Use the Power Capabilities report to identify computers that have disabled Wakeup timers.

Wakeup Time Setting in the Power Plan Properties Dialog Box Does Not Wake Laptop Computers

The site administrator can set a wake up time for computers to resume from sleep mode and install critical updates. This setting does not wake laptop computers from sleep mode to avoid waking computers that might be running on battery power.


You Cannot Enable Hibernate in a Power Plan When Hybrid Sleep is Enabled.

Hybrid sleep saves open programs to memory before placing the computer in a low power state. When hybrid sleep is enabled in a power plan, you cannot also select hibernate as part of the power plan.

By default, hybrid sleep is disabled on laptop computers to avoid draining the battery.


Bye bye
