I should also mention that in Vista you don't need anything special to do power management. It is native to Group Policy and doesn't require any client side extensions, etc. Jamie Nelson | Operations Consultant | BI&T Infrastructure-Intel | Devon Energy Corporation | Work: 405.552.8054 | Mobile: 405.200.8088 | http://www.dvn.com <http://www.dvn.com/> From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Darren Mar-Elia Sent: Friday, September 26, 2008 10:46 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: Power Schemes in GP? Tim- You can use GP Preferences for this.

Parker Sent: Friday, September 26, 2008 8:37 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Power Schemes in GP? Is it possible to set these values through a GP? I have some machines that are desktop units that it appears have the portable/laptop option set. So they go to sleep after a period of time. This makes it tough for me to remotely administer or support them when users are not around. I want to create a policy that will set all the machines to the same settings so I don't have to visit all the desks. TIA.
