Manage Wyse 5470 mobile client with WMS

We use Wyse 5470 mobile thin clients in a check-out laptop cart scenario.  The carts are managed, meaning they have a network switch and all clients are hardwired to the network while in the cart.

Is there a good way, or best practice case to send DTOS updates/changes with WMS while the clients are in the cart (closed lid, possibly powered off)?

When the devices are turned on and boot up they will get their policy assigned via WMS, and if firmware/package updates are part of that they will be applied.

If you want to try and force the devices to wakeup and apply settings, you can try a device command to "Wake on Lan".  success of a Wake on lan packet is entirely dependent on your network and if it allows the packets to be broadcast to wake the device.
