You can check this out and see if it works, I've not tested it though so use a test machine first.

Opening regedit,

\\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Controls Folder\Powercfg

if you add INTERACTIVE GROUP to GlobalPowerPolicy and PowerPolicies Keys, and if you add "set value" and "create subkey" permissions, you can change power scheme from windows control panel.

But I can't create a new power scheme with powercfg.exe.
Please provide the steps done by you..that will help us to get the Correct Figure

I gave all permissions to INTERACTIVE group (logged users) in these subkeys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power

as Stoner79 url link said.

When I lauch these commands:

powercfg.exe /setactive 0 /numerical

powercfg.exe /delete myenergy
powercfg.exe /create myenergy

powercfg.exe /change myenergy /monitor-timeout-ac 10
powercfg.exe /change myenergy /monitor-timeout-dc 5

powercfg.exe /change myenergy /disk-timeout-ac 20
powercfg.exe /change myenergy /disk-timeout-dc 10

powercfg.exe /change myenergy /standby-timeout-ac 15
powercfg.exe /change myenergy /standby-timeout-dc 10

powercfg.exe /setactive myenergy

powercfg.exe /hibernate on

powercfg.exe /change myenergy /hibernate-timeout-ac 25
powercfg.exe /change myenergy /hibernate-timeout-dc 20

powercfg.exe /setactive myenergy
It's all right EXCEPT that:
powercfg.exe /hibernate on

NOTE: I can't access an important link of article recommended by Stoner79.
Link "http://groups.google.com/groups?threadm=uEgNmYgsDHA.3536%40tk2msftngp13.phx.gbl" gave me an error:

Thank you very much

The solution explains that registry keys must be changed is we want a user can change power profile, but it don't explicate how change permissions from a bat/cmd/batch script.
