I found this to be a little tricky. Because it's a little bit more complicated than just "all machines on all the time".

I, too, wanted to configure via GPO all of the computers so that they do not go to sleep.

But, I also wanted the display to turn off after 5 minutes. I wanted the computers to prompt for a password after 10 minutes of being idle (and this meant I needed the blank screensaver to kick in after 10 minutes and prompt for a password when the screensaver was deactivated).

I didn't want any laptops to dim the screen (it confused my users). For laptops or computers on battery power, I DID want the hard disks to turn off after 10 minutes and I DID want the computers to sleep after 15 minutes. After all, I didn't want laptops or future desktops on a UPS to die unexpectedly.



Creating your own custom power profile causes issues - the power profile GUID is different for each computer, so you can't assign it in a GPO. Instead, what worked best for me was to override the "High Performance" power profile with my own desired power options, and then assign that profile to the computers.

See the report below for the settings I configured in order to accomplish all of the above.
