Actually, this is not exposed through Power Options but through Device
Manager. As such, you could probably rig up a custom ADM (or use the Group
Policy Preferences registry extension to manage this). The challenge will be
if all your systems have different keyboard and mouse types because the reg
key path will likely change for each type. For example, for my keyboard,
enabling this option tweaks the following reg value.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\VID_03F9&PID_0100\6&4a
fcd5b&0&0000\Device Parameters]
"WaitWakeEnabled"=dword:00000001

Although the EZ GPO stuff was pretty handy back in the day, the new FREE
Group Policy Preference extensions (formerly DesktopStandard
PolicyMaker) have much more flexible options for power management (and a
TON of other stuff) in Windows XP (Vista has native support for Power
Management via group policy).

The only catch is that you must 1) have a Server 2008 or Vista SP1 RSAT
GPMC console from which to create/edit the policy and 2) you must deploy
the GPP CSE to all of the client systems you want to manage.

I'm not 100% sure if what you're asking can be done even with GPP
though, as I don't have a console to play around in at the moment. Maybe
one of the other list members can look for us. Either way, however, that
option should be enabled by default on motherboards where USB and/or
PS/2 wakeup is available. Worst case you could probably script out those
settings and apply them at computer startup.

Subject: [gptalk] GPO for Power Management

We need to push out the Energy Star GPO.  But for the computer to be put
into Stand-by mode and then brought out of standby mode using the
keyboard or mouse the options under each devices Power Management tab
needs to be checked to "Allow this device to bring the computer out of
standy".  Is there a way to create a GPO for Windows XP that would be
able to do this?

Thanks.
