Using active directory to push out Power Configuration to your users power.adm

Got the .adm from here

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_21074765.html

But need to add a blank line at the end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CLASS MACHINE
CLASS USER
CATEGORY “Control Panel”
CATEGORY “Power Schemes”
KEYNAME “Control Panel\Powercfg”
POLICY “Power Configuration – User Setting”
PART “Power Schemes” DROPDOWNLIST
REQUIRED
KEYNAME “Control Panel\PowerCfg”
VALUENAME “CurrentPowerPolicy”
ITEMLIST
NAME “Max Battery”
VALUE “5”
NAME “Home/Office Desk”
VALUE “0”

NAME “Presentation”
VALUE “2” DEFAULT

VALUE “3”
NAME “Minimal Power Management”
VALUE “4”
END ITEMLIST
END PART
END POLICY
END CATEGORY
END CATEGORY

Save this as an .adm. Open up group policy management on your server. Right click edit one of your policies. Under user configuration there is administrative templates. Right click and go add/remove templates. Add the above created .adm if you get an error about CATEGOR you need to add a blank line to the end of the .adm

Now click into control panel, power schemes. THEN OPEN up View, click filtering AND UNCHECK Only show policy settings that can be fully managed.

Now you should see power configuration – user setting. Enable it and then change to your desired scheme.
