Desktop shutdowns and prompts to process bundle after startu

Original thread:
https://forums.novell.com/showthread.php/505638-Workstation-Shutdown-Consistency

I'm getting more reports of this happening and I went to a few machines myself and got this prompt. I double-checked to make sure HonorTESSFireSchedule was set to TRUE, and it was. I read it's the default now in Update 3 or 4, anyway.

The worst part is that I'm told they don't even get the windows to select YES or NO. It just shuts down on them with no warning.

I'm not sure if the machines were off or asleep when this happens. I didn't pay attention this morning, but I don't remember a flashing sleep light, but I did get the popup on one of the machines she has been having issues with.

Fast Boot is also disabled through registry key.

I just tried setting an end time to see if that helps, according to https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7023169, even though we're on Update 4.

Re: Desktop shutdowns and prompts to process bundle after st

The Original issue was that if a bundle was flagges as "Run Past Due=False", it would run anyway.
That is fixed with the items you noted.

Most likely, you have one or more bundles where this value is "True" causing whatever was scheduled to run previously kick off as soon as the device started up or woke up...

Where is the "Run Past Due" setting at?

I have "Process immediately if device unable to execute on schedule" unchecked.

Same Setting......Are you sure it's not another bundle doing it where that is not checked?

I have four "shutdown" bundles. Two for user logged in and two for users logged out. One user logged in and out at 4:30pm, and another set for 8:00pm. None of them have that setting checked. All are un-checked.

It's one of those bundles that is the issue, though, but they get prompted to either hit Yes to shutdown, or No to keep working.

Is there a way to find other bundles that have that checked? I don't remember ever using it.
