Oh and for anyone that read my post on power management through windows XP. You can modify it throught the registry , just go to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT. look under the tab and its easy from their.....

I don't think you can do it unless you connect to the PC. Active Directory allows for more advancesd stuff, but I still don't think you can rename a machine without getting on it. Something to do with security. But I'm still looking so we will see...
