Turning off hibernation?

I'm looking to turn off hibernation for XP laptops in our domain but don't know the best way.

We have one 2008 DC in the domain at the moment and I have yet to create the preference folder in the sysvol. But I should still be able to use the preferences correct?

I set a user side logon script with line "powercfg /hibernate off" and it worked but my question is, how can I do this in preferences and utilize the Targeting feature (target for laptops options)

The user side power options under preferences doesn't seem to exist. On the computer side, it's admin temps | system | Power but doesn't work as a computer setting for some dumb reason

Any ideas?

Have you tried using this?

Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Power Management.

Neilsr,

I read this and I already stated that the user side logon script works but that article is rediculous.

The question was how can I leverage this using preferences? The power options are already their but didn't seem to work.

Any ideas?

You have already deployed the power options in a GPO they are not there?

  1. Open the Start Menu.
   2. Right click Command Prompt.
   3. Select Run as administrator.
   4. To turn hibernation off type the following “powercfg -hibernate off” without the quotes.
   5. To turn Hibernation on type the following “powercfg -hibernate on” without the quotes.

dbradley,

This is for GPO not local policy.

Does anyone know anything about the new preferences feature in 2008?

I do but you shouldn't have to use this for this feature

Ok but preferences are better in this case and not only simplify the process but include client side targeting so I can target portable computers.

The preferences are not working on XP. Is this because I didn't create the policy folder in the sysvol? Or is it because the XP machine doesn't have xmlight and client side extensions? I didn't think that was required for XP to process the preferences because I created the GPO in 2008 (not on my xp machine)

Ah just found an article, I do need xmllight and CCEs on every xp client in order for it to pull preferences. Good reason to upgrade operating systems I guess
