How do I change the battery power plan while using a "desktop"

I’m building a Windows 7 Pro 32-Bit SP1 image and I’m using a Virtual Machine (VMWare VSphere) to accomplish that. I’m trying to adjust power settings and I can for the desktop but I have no option to adjust them for battery or Laptop.

I’m trying to figure out a way to modify battery power plan settings even that Windows does not see that I have a battery.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

If you are going to consider making a single image, then look at using GPO/Startup/Logon Scripts to mange Power Options.....

To elaborate....

Start/Logon scripts, could use powercfg.exe to set these , and in the sxcript have it detect desktop/laptop, and set accordingly....
