Not sure how that setting is causing issue, however, if they are all HP devices. Check out:http://h20219.www2.hp.com/Hpsub/cache/284014-0-0-225-121.html
You can query the setting and turn it on or off, or you can query and then write a registry key so LANDesk sucks it into the DB. Also replicated setup for HPs can help standardize the BIOS settings. Of course all this requires:
Older system requires the CMI utility being loaded.
Some scripting knowledge - There are examples in the manual - WMI/VBS or Autoitscript.
As ZMAN hinted, you're pretty much at the mercy of the limits of what your hardware can do // what your OEM is willing to do for it.
Some OEM's provide "remote scripting tools" for BIOS-settings and such like for SOME hardware. You'll need to get in touch with HP to make sure whether your hardware base does / does not have such a tool, and how to go about getting ahold of it (I don't think any of them charge for it, but I might be wrong).
Other than that - what ZMAN said :).

The link is HP's scripting tool and documentation -they are not really clear sometimes It is sort of a PITA but it works. You can either use VB script or AutoitScript.
