I have an SBS 2008 sever. In GPO the only option for power management is for XP. Is there a way to configured Windows 7 power options on the server. I'd prefer not to install RSAT on a windows 7 computer?

go into Group Policy

Create a policy and call it Win7Powermanagement or something

Apply it to your win7 OU or create an ou that has all the win 7 machines in it and apply it there.

Then in your new policy go to Computer Configuration\preferences\Control Panel Settings\Power options  

In the power options window right click -> create new power plan vista and later.

Set the options you need and you should be good!

Gpupdate /force on the machines you applied it to.

I don't have the option "create new power plan vista and later."  I only have "Power Option Windows XP."

Sorry forgot to mention that you have to have either a 2008 r2 or install the rsat tools on a windows 7 machine then you can login as admin and edit the gpo from the win 7 box via rsat tools.

My original question was can it be done on teh server. I know I can install RSAT on a Windows 7 computer but I was hoping not to have to do that

No, it cannot be done natively with the GPO which comes on SBS 2008.  Your have to do it from another machine, either another server on your network or a client with RSAT on it.  Sorry.
