    I am pretty new to managing mac's via apple remote desktop. I have around 35 iMacs in a school building and are all connected to a wifi network. I have an admin mac that has the apple remote desktop installed on it and it is also connected over the same wifi network.

    Whenever, i try to scan all available computers, i am able to see them all as i have enable remote desktop management on all 35 of the iMacs.

    I am able to control, observe etc...however, after a short period, the iMac appears to be offline in my list and i am unable to connect with it. On checking physically, i can just see the iMac on standby mode. Is this effecting the status of the iMac? Is there something else that needs to be checked?

    Please help...

    That is standard the Mac OS X that in sleep modem it disconnected from networks. However that changed when Apple started using PowerNap. Do you have it enabled or have a Mac that support it?
