Power Plan using Windows 7 RSAT

I was wondering if anyone knew why setting up a new Power Option isn't working for me.  Here's what we are working with...

We have Vista workstations with the balanced power plan selected.  We want to be able to push out the High Performance option to all the workstation without having to go and visit every single pc.  

I have setup a Windows7 pc with RSAT installed.  I go to GP management editor and tried to set it up on both the user and computer preferences.  

I tried to update\create\replace\delete and nothing works, I also tried to do a custom setting and that didn't work.

Is there something I'm missing?  I do a gpupdate /force and the power plan remains the same.

Don't use preference. Set the specific options through administrative templates (Computer Side\System\Power management).

You get a lot more control and users can't change it.
