Extend the Preboot Authentication Reboot

We are using Checkpoint client version E80.81 or newer in most of our environment of nearly 14k machines. Over the last year that I have been the admin we have disabled the Preboot authentication for various reasons to assist the users ie upgrade to windows version 1607, 1709 and for intern season.

I know that when we re-enable the Preboot Authentication it will prompt the user to reboot the machine in order for the PBA to take place. The issue is that it only gives 30 seconds of notice for the reboot. Is there a way to extend the countdown or do I need to start hiding the nameplate on my cubicle?

Unfortunately, this is not something that can be configured currently.

Is this still the case with R80.30 and the E83.00 client?  I can't seem to see anything within the FDE policy to extend the reboot time to more than 30 seconds.
