Mark- 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. http://www.terranovum.com/projects/energystar/ez_gpo.html Darren From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Latham, Mark Sent: Thursday, January 24, 2008 3:31 PM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Laptop & PC Power Settings Hello! 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.
