It would be nice if we had the option for certain packages to make them uninterruptible by the end users. For example if you are pushing out a new browser version silently, any open instance of the browser will be closed prior to the install. However if the user is at the computer they will just reopen the browser before the install starts. I know there is an option to display a message to the users but they all just close the messages and most don't even read them.
What this feature would do is display a full screen massage to any users currently logged on and disable their Mouse & Keyboard. After the package has finished being deployed the message would go away and the users Mouse & Keyboard would be re-enabled so they can continue working.
We could even use the popup message step available now with this to warn them to save all current open documents as the update will be taking place in a few minutes. Use the sleep step to give them time to save things and then jump into the uninterrupted deployment steps.
