Hello Amy.

We had the same needs back in July as we have some classrooms with thin
clients and although we don't just offer the oVirt service we wanted
something simple so users don't need to open a browser and just handle
their machines in a simple way, so I found this project [1] that works
quite fine for what we need. Manage virtual machine's power and start a
viewer. Period. No more funcionalities (not sure if you need something more

The project has been stopped for a time but it seems that the maintainer is
implementing new capabilities and fixing some things lately.

As a side note, you didn't mention if your thin clients are linux or
windows based but I believe this is for linux only.
