Hi together,

first off all i try to give normal domain users the permission to change power schemes.
Therefor i find a registry hack to give them the permission
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Controls Folder\PowerCfg give Domian-User Full control in regedt32).

Now my question: Is there a possibility to make this permission change on all computers in my domain?

Best Regards

You would have to make an administrative template file and use it within your GPO. A complete guide can be found here


Good luck

That's the best answer.  An alternative that's worth a mention if for some reason GPO isn't an option, is to export the reg key, and merge it into all of your domain machines via a login script or something. . . .  But group policy is the way I'd go, too. . . .
