I've been banging my poor little brain into mush trying to get things to work right.
We have Server 2003 and about 12 windows xp pro clients. It seems that no matter what I do, I cannot change the power settings on the clients, even as an administrator. I've checked out the MS KB and tried applying their fix which is to create a power management policy. I also tried the EPAs EZ GPO which I could not get working either.
Anyway, I would appreciate it if anyone had any suggestions as to a GPO manager that will allow me to control the power settings on the individual clients
RA - the problem is that I can't seem to get those settings for the domain to where I want them. I've been through the policy settings under the GPO a couple of times and I must be missing something.
I was logging as as the network adminstrator
I am going to try one other thing. One of my vendors is supposed to set up a conference call with a UPS manufacuter's rep. OUr thought is that the UPS folks have to have figured out how to manage power settings due to the nature of their product. I'll let you folks know what happens.
