Displaying custom message at Log Off - Ideas?

We are running Netware v65. , Zen 4 and Nov Client 4.91

Does anyone know if there is a way to tweak when a user logs off or goes to shutdown there pc that a custom message appears such as: "Turn off monitor to save power"

Is there a reg setting or the likes that anyome is using?

Cheers,
Dale.

Looking in Google I found something on hacking the gina to provide for
logoff messages. Of course, this is for the msgina, and is 8 years old,
now. If you are using the Novell client, then you would have to modify the
nwgina, and as that gets updated pretty regularly, you probably will find
this to be an impractical solution.
