[strings]
ControlPanel="Control Panel"
PowerOptionsCat="Power Options"

PowerConfigurationCfg="Power Configuration"

PowerScheme="Configure Power Settings:"
PowerSchemeHomeOfficeDesk="Home/Office Desk"
PowerSchemePortableLaptop="Portable/Laptop"
PowerSchemePresentation="Presentation"
PowerSchemeAlwaysOn="Always On"
PowerSchemeMinimalPowerManagement="Minimal Power Management"
PowerSchemeMaxBattery="Max Battery"

I have created a power.adm file from the text above. However, when I add the template to Local Policy on an XP Pro machine the only thing that shows up is a Power Options container under Control Panel with nothing else inside. In other words it creates a container for the policy I wish to configure but it is empty. I think it may have to do with the fact that it is trying to reference a registry string [CurrentPowerPolicy] instead of a DWORD or BINARY type. I'm not sure what to substitute in place of the VALUE type of NUMERIC to change a string's data value.

Hi!

Go to Administrative templates, the clikc View menu, select Filtering and clear check box in front of "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed".

Thanks,
It can be the simplest settings that are the most frustrating.
