With SCCM sp1 you can obviously manually initiate a vPro Power Off to a pc in a specific collection but is it possible to incorporate the vPro Power Off command in an SCCM Task Sequence?
If so how?
What vPro management functions cannot be Task Sequenced?
There is nothing native within SCCM SP1 that allows you to schedule an AMT Power Off command; however, typically you would want to use the agent to gracefully shutdown the OS so not to inadvertently corrupt the OS (you can use a task sequence command such as shutdown -s -f to perform this within the OS gracefully). You can; however, set up an advertisement to wake up the vPro client using an AMT power control command. Please reference the p-11318 following blog.
If want you to perform a AMT power off command from a task sequence, you can use a run command task within SCCM and leverage the http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1767 Remote Control Utility
