    Exactly. This is the way it supposed to be.
    Little fixes go during the login process and bigger ones we do over
    night/over weekend after writing an eMail to the users.

    We kindly ask to leave their machines powered on or restart them and
    if possible to switch on those machines from colleagues who are on
    vaccation or for some other reason not available.

    This works just fine :-)

    bis dahin - kind regards
