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
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.
