I can't wait for the Playmobil version of these events. As long as it doesn't cause some sort of implosion in the space/time continuum a la the LHC...

"it saves a copy onto the c-drive."
Surely this isnt the secure way of doing this? Why dont they just set the machines to hibernate over night rather than shut down? They would also come back online faster thereby using fewer CPU cycles and less hard disk activity when booting (and therefore less power...) every morning.
These must be relatively new PCs so they ought all to have hibernation support on the BIOS. I can understand the desire to reboot them occasionally to get rid of the gremlins and that not all hibernations recover properly but I should imagine people would get used to saving their work before they leave overnight pretty sharpish after a few repeats of them leaving their PC on overnight (which they are obviously not SUPPOSED to do) and not saving their work (why are they using computers if they aren't trained to save regularly??).
All that said, good on them for making an attempt at hitting this whole leave-PCs-on-all-the-time culture.
