I believe your problems can be solved with the "Terra Novum EZ GPO Tool" for setting standby timeouts for computer and monitor etc for WinXP machines (Vista already supports this AFAIK). Check http://www.terranovum.com/projects/energystar/ez_gpo.html. It's free. I've run this for well over a year, probably two, and it works fine. An ADM-template is included IIRC, and the software itself comes as a msi-package to deploy ever AD with a GPO. More info on http://www.terranovum.com/projects/energystar/index.html. Are you on a green-spree at work? ;-) -- /Sorin >-----Original Message----- >From: windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx >[mailto:windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] >On Behalf Of Patrick >Sent: Thursday, December 18, 2008 9:49 AM >To: windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx >Subject: [windows2000] Auto-shutdown pc's with GPO > >Hi Guys, > >We are trying to setup a process were all pc's are turned off at a certain >time >of the >day.
