We're in the middle of an internal review of our deployment practices, and we're
considering going that way - asking our users to just log off.

Since we're far from confident that they'll actually follow those instructions,
we're also looking into a Wake-on-LAN fallback mechanism to access boxes that
were shutdown either despite instructions, by power failure, put into automatic
sleep, or otherwise (soooo many ways to put down a box...).

When planning your instructions to your users, did you consider WOL?  Did you
find any major drawbacks?  I wouldn't want to visit 200 BIOSes to enable WOL,
only to find out there's a show-stopper somewhere down the line...
