Good day,

I am using GPMC to configure a GPO for our Windows 7 computers and I must be doing something wrong. All I want to do is to turn OFF sleep and hybernate and set the monitor to shut off (but not the computer) when the computer is not being used. I see all of the options in GPMC for power management but the computers still hybernate at night. All other parts of the GPO are working as they are suppose to.

Can anyone provide the exact features I need to select to make the above settings work?

Thank you so much!!
