Hi,

We have windows 2003 Additional Domain controller in our location. We have desktops as well as laptops.

I need some script to be applied in group policy (Computer O U ) such that it makes some changes in the registry of desktops and laptops so that after 30 mins the users desktops and laptops monitor should go to sleep mode. If i get some script i will apply it in group policy through which we can save power.

Is there any such script which runs when users restart their laptop or desktop and makes necessary changes in registry.

Any other way pls let me know.

Group policy to date does not support this.....next server release will..however, you can have a play with this and see if it works for you
