Hi, I have a computer at a client site that is Windows 7, on a domain.  Due to it's function, they don't want it to go into sleep mode.  I shut it off in windows, but it still happens.  I think I shut it off in the group policy locally and on the domain, but it still happens.

Question: is there a way to modify this to be shut off?  I must be missing something.

Thanks all.

on the clinet machine did you run gpupdate /force ?

what are the setting in control panel power options?

run gpedit.msc  go to power management section any thing enabled that is listed under sleep settings

The domain policy override the local policy fyi.

Check and see if the Windows 7 computer comes with a third party (vendor supplied) power management program (for example Lenovo Power Manager). If so and if it is running, it may override Windows Power Management.

Otherwise, as noted above, go to Windows Power Management and set Sleep to Never (several places if I recall correctly - on AC, on Battery).

Under power options, advanced power settings. Make sure it's set to 0 (never) under both Sleep and Hibernate.
