In the default world of GP, there is no explicit support for Power settings
unless you're running Vista. However, have a look at the following free
utility, which has been around for awhile and has been generally well
received. Also note that when MS ships the Group Policy Preferences add-on
when 2008 ships, you will get this capability in GP for XP as well.

Subject: [gptalk] Laptop & PC Power Settings





I would like to set a GP to set the power setting to all of our PC's and
Laptops to Always on - no exceptions.

The nurses always complain that one PC or Laptop has shutdown and they need
them on till the battery quits.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for any input.
