wilbywilson: thanks for the reply. Im not supressing the reboot, so i can allow it to reboot in the window. but it xp machines don't make it to the window. When I suppress restart on my xp or w7 collections, the maintenance window comes and never restarts.. I change it to not suppress.. the w7 machines reboot inside the window but the xp machines reboot before the window ever happens.
I have noticed that xp machines are rebooted by winlogon.exe and windows 7 machines are rebooted by ccmexec.exe not sure if this has anything to do with the xp machines not waiting for the window, the following events from when I ran a maintenance window test.. the window was from 3:30p to 6:30p
