Prevent computers going to standby/sleep via group policy
Posted on 2006-11-16
Not sure which TA this should go into... I have a network with a Win 2K3 R2 server & several XP Pro SP2 clients. Some of these clients (most notably the Dell Optiplexes) end up going to sleep after a certain period of inactivity, and I need to be able to prevent this behaviour, preferably through group policy. I have 2 that are more important that others, so I would also accept another method for these two.
All users log on using restricted accounts that prevent them from going into the control panel or changing power settings...
I have tried making the changes as administrator (one one computer) and then deleting all other profiles & saving the admin profile as default... it doesn't work!
I have tried a couple of group-policy options as well but nothing has worked...
