Shutdown, Hibernate, Sleep, Restart disabled
Posted on 2010-08-26
Hi all, so apparently on this domain that I did not build there was a reason to disable to the power button/hibernate and sleep commands. I went into the GPOs for the domain and in the User Configuration--> Administrative Templaters-->Start Menu and Taskbar the "Remove and prevent access to the Shutdown Command" was not configured, but all the users except Administrator (including me, who is a member of the administrators group!?!) do not have access to any of these commands. I went as far as to explicitly disable this GPO in sub-OUs and on my local machine. Did gpupdate /force, logged on and off multiple times, it is still disable. The does not seem to be a GPO backup available. Where could this setting be coming from ???
