Can't get EZ GPO to work

I am trying to implement EZ GPO to make the computers go into a standbye state at night when not in use to save on energy costs but can't seem to get the GPO to work correctly. I have added the .adm to the GPO I am wanting to use to assign this policy and have configured both the computer and user settings identically to suspend the computer and turn the monitor off after a set amount of time.

I have enabled Base Options
Simple Settings Scheme
Power Management Settings Schema Major Version 2
Power Management Settings fSchema Minor Version 0
Control Variable not modified

Options Enabled and Checked
Machine Override
Force Standby to be set on all machines
Force Settings to be updated regardless.....

AC Profile Scheme
AC No User Monitor Timeout 1
AC No User System Standby Timeout 2
AC No User Hard Disk Spindown Timeout 1
AC No User Hibernate Timeout 0

I have a user and computer assigned both to this gpo. The computer supports S3 but will not take this policy object. I have enforced the policy and ran GPO results wizard on the computer and user to see the winning GPO and the one specified for the Power Management wins. Please Help.
