See the following post I made a couple of months ago, which includes a
ton of links for you to check out regarding GPP:

Hi Jamie,

 

Many thanks for your reply and suggestions.

 

The blogs are incredibly informative. 

 

I am supporting a Win 2003 domain with all desktop at present Win XP
SP2. I am yet to lay my hands on Group Policy Preference but seeing the
last blog ie part-3 of 3, I am lured to play around. You are right, EZ
GPO Tool will require a client component to be installed in each machine
and therefore GPP will be better off to deploy.

 

Can you suggest any other link from where I can get basic and practical
information on GPP before I play around with the power management.  

 

Regards, 

 

Pankaj

Pankaj,

 

Hi, I've used it in a very large environment of 18,000+ systems and it
worked very well. However, since you have to deploy a client to each
machine you would be much better off to deploy the Group Policy
Preferences (GPP) CSE and use it to do power management instead. It's
much easier, not to mention that GPP gives you tons of other
functionality as well. There is a good blog about it on the Directory
Services team site located here (Parts 1 & 2 cover Vista/2008 and part 3
covers Windows XP):

 

http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/03/17/managing-power-with-gr
oup-policy-part-1-of-3.aspx

http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/03/19/managing-power-with-gr
oup-policy-part-2-or-3.aspx

http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/03/21/managing-power-with-gr
oup-policy-part-3-of-3.aspx

 

Best of all GPP is free and DOES NOT require a Windows 2008 domain, just
one Windows Vista SP1 workstation or Windows 2008 member server to
create and edit the policies on.

 

If you didn't gather it from the blog, keep in mind that with Vista/2008
you don't need anything special to do power management; you can do it
natively in Group Policy (not even GPP is required).

Hi,
U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR program, Terra Novum developed the EZ GPO tool to
centrally manage power management settings on Windows client
workstations. Their site link is given below:

If anyone on the forum who had implemented this, could you please share
your comments on the  tool.

Regards,

Pankaj
