      If the slave availability is set to "Take this slave on-line when in demand and off-line when idle" then it happens quite often that the SCM polling won't find the workspace on the slave. This leads the polling to assume there are changes and therefore it triggers a new build due to the active "Poll SCM" setting even though there are no changes in the SCM. That means in our case this job is constantly building.

      Is there a way that the SCM polling only happens when the slave is awake or that the SCM polling wakes up the slave?
