Executing Tasks

Each of the available remote actions can be executed immediately or scheduled for execution. To execute the remote action immediately you should choose the Execute item from the action drop down from the Remote Actions Ribbon group. E. g. if you want to execute Hibernate immediately you should choose Hibernate > Execute Hibernate. The wizard will appear on the screen to help you with the task configuration. For all task types, except Wake On LAN, and Unlock Devices, the first page of the wizard allows you to configure the type specific options for the task, e. g. if the action chosen is Shutdown, on the next page you are proposed to specify action timeout, if the notification message is shown during the timeout, notification message itself, if the currently logged on user on the remote Machine can abort the shut down process and if the applications should be forced to close.
