Autoboot Question

I have used autoboot in the past for machines that are used only as training laptops, but for some reason it is not working now.  I have the $autoboot$ user added to the machine and the only setting that is checked under General is to Reject/Suspend hibernate requests.

We are using version 5.2.5 on Windows XP machines and some Windows 7.

Has anything changed with the way autoboot works or am I just missing something.

Thank you.

Re: Autoboot Question

probably someone changed the password on the $autoboot$ account - that's the most likely explanation.
