There is not much that you can get in Group Policy.
Go to User Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Power Management.

Additionally you can use scripts and apply them using GPO. Try this link if this works for you:

What I do is set the permissions on the power options registry keys to allow regular users to set the default power profile. You will have to go get satacl.exe from http://setacl.sourceforge.net/
Then as administrator run these commands.  I use a software deployment tool called wpkg to deploy software, so I created a new package that runs these commands.

SetACL.exe -on "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Controls Folder\PowerCfg\GlobalPowerPolicy" -ot reg -actn ace -ace "n:users;p:full" -log "c:\setacllog.txt" -silent

SetACL.exe -on "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Controls Folder\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies" -ot reg -actn ace -ace "n:users;p:full" -log "c:\setacllog.txt" -silent'

Then from there I use the power config tool available in XP to set the default profile in the user login script.  I use the always on profile since I run updates and such at night.
POWERCFG /SETACTIVE "Always On"
