  1. Allow WOL across subnets without relay or allow the relay agent to

    The old method of WOL in 7.2 and below was able to send packets across subnets. The new relay agent method cannot. If all machines are powered off in a subnet, then it is not possible to wake up the machines at all starting in version 8.0. I have had to resort to using another product for WOL scheduling. This feature was a nice selling point. I'm pretty sure the other suggestion was to have the option to use a relay.. not be forced to.

  3. Add wake on LAN to Patch schedules.

    Add a check box to add Wake-On-LAN for any computers that are part of a patch schedule. This way you do not need to define WOL schedules and worry about them being in sync with your patch schedules.

  4. Wake on Lan to be Not Dependent on ARP Cache

    Would like the K1000's Wake-On-Lan implementation to function more like a program called Spiceworks. The appliance currently dependent on the ARP cache. KACE WOL is dependent on the ARP cache of the network gateway device (i.e. router) to determine where to send the Wake-On-Lan packets to. The concern is if a machine is turned off for an extended amount of time (e.g. days), the ARP cache would be cleared on his network gateway devices, and the K1000 won't be able to wake up the device.
