Overview

The Student Schedule Sleep/Wake process allows an office to print a student's schedule formatted on one page from the Registration form (SFAREGS) to a designated printer. The sleep/wake process is started once in the morning for each printer that will be used. The process runs throughout the day (generally every 30 seconds) and prints schedules for requests submitted via the Registration form (SFAREGS). At the end of the day, the sleep/wake process must be stopped for each printer used.
