Power Management via GPO

Hello. We've been rolling out XP and would like to control the power
management settings that put the hard drive, and monitor to sleep. The only
GPO I can find is whether or not to prompt for a password after hibernation.

Right now it's a management issue as we do not allow our regular users to be
local administrators. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Not possible ... This has been researched many times by many people ... But,
users don't need to be local admins to set power settings ... Power settings
are set per user, not per PC ...

What about the EnergyStar service? Not considered stable enough for
enterprise deployment?

I stand corrected ... I've asked around with hundreds of admins and never
found anything ... Thanks for the link ... We'll check it out ...

We're in that mode, too, so I make no claims that this is a be-all-end-all
solution, but it looks good on paper.
