You can also use the powercfg.exe utility to Create, Export to a .pow
file then import using a login script.

Check out WinSysDir\powercfg.exe /? This will give you a list of options
To Create and Export a power scheme
Set the Power Options the way you want them. 
1. From a cmd prompt run powercfg.exe /C "Name" This creates a new power
scheme with the current power settings.
2. Type powercfg.exe /L to list the available schemes. You should see
the scheme you just created
3. powercfg.exe /E "Name" This will export the power scheme you created
to the root of c: named scheme.pow

From a login script copy down the new scheme.pow file to %WinSysDir%
then run powercfg.exe /I SCHEME.POW (this will import the new
scheme)then powercfg.exe /S SCHEME.POW (this will set the new scheme as
the active power scheme)

Omar-
Outside of the 3rd party products, there is this free utility that has
been around for a while:

Subject: [gptalk] Power management setting

Hey does anyone know how to control power management settings from a
GPO?

My users do not have local admin- and they all have notebooks.

The power options that are set by the administrator do not hold for the
user.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Omar
