Power options are not available on WAIK.
You can cretate a script to change registry to set the disired power options
You have a small guide i here.

You can select the power scheme by adding the Microsoft-Windows-powercpl component to your xml, and changing PreferredPlan to the GUID of the desired plan:
To see the GUIDs run c:>powercfg -LIST
Existing Power Schemes (* Active)
-----------------------------------
Power Scheme GUID: 381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e  (Balanced)
Power Scheme GUID: 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c  (High performance)
Power Scheme GUID: a1841308-3541-4fab-bc81-f71556f20b4a  (Power saver) *
