Use the LDAP query for the main target query and then use the machine query for a prerequisite query to limit the machines to laptops.
If you use them both then it will include both results of both querues - not what you want.
Thanks Zman. I apologize, as I'm a real newby at this, but how do I take a Power Managment task (which only appears to let me put it as a scheduled task), and get it into a distribution package (where I see that prerequisites are available)?
No apologies needed I forgot it was a scheduled task. I'm not sure why LANDesk chose to use a scheduled task in lieu of a policy, because it sure makes life more difficult. I just spent about 30 minutes going through the DB to see what they are calling for the scheduled task (exe - command line - etc...) but gave up.

I'm pretty sure there's an ER been logged for Power Manager to be available as a policy and so on as well. Remember, it's a Rev 1, so enhancement should be coming down the line. Just can't find the silly thing at the moment.
The usual conundrum of "Something that works now, or the perfect product in 3 years time" so to speak.
But yes, if you want those things, just log those ER's with support / get added to them.
