Can anyone share a method to locate (whether with a report, or a smartlabel, or other means) clients within K1000 that are NOT in a Detect or a Deploy schedule? 

As far as I can tell, Reports will only key on states of a client's patching schedules, not if they are not in one at all.

My approach to this was to create all of my patching schedules with labels that end in the word "Patching", e.g. "Lab Patching", "Test Patching", "Picky Department Patching", etc. I then created a smart label called "Patch Production" that applies to any machines where label names does not end in "Patching". This allows us to define a default patching schedule for our production environment and machines automatically fall into that schedule unless we specify another schedule. 

If you don't want to have machines default to a schedule, then you could call your label something like "No Patch Schedule" and leave it at that. Just make sure your smart label doesn't end in the word "Patching".
