Window xp powercfg.exe script

Hi,
I've create a script which change power profile name and edit 5 minutes in turn off power monitor.this script i've configured in group policy.it working well on all user Active directory profile.

script is
@echo off
Powercfg.exe /CREATE "Power Saving"
Powercfg.exe /CHANGE "Power Saving" /monitor-timeout-ac-5
Powercfg.exe /SETACTIVE "Power Saving"
Hostname >> C:\Hostname.txt

Now the issue, i want to configure if else statement in it.
like:-if script work then it create a file in C: drive and print computer name & PASS msg in file.if suppose script not run in user profile then print computer name & Fail msg in file.

i hope you understand what i'm saying.

Thanks,

Hello.
to my understanding your problem can be solved with checking the error level after the last powercfg.exe
if %errorlevel% equ 1 (
echo " fail"  >> c:\hostname.txt
) else (
echo "pass" >> c:\hostname.txt
)
i hope that helps

that is a bit odd.
try ommiting the c:\ (for debugging purposes only) and feedback the results please.

i'm unable to understand, you mean is
if %errorlevel% equ 3

but now i've change the errorlevel to 2
now file create in c drive and it print hostname and pass.i've check power setting in control panal.it fine.
Now if i run again this script,it should give me fail or print fail msg in file because setting already implemented before running this script.
but it print pass in both conditions.

I can understand why you'd think this but it's not the case.  The script runs fine and POWERCFG is able to set the power config even if it is the same setting.  So as far as POWERCFG is concerned there is no error.

make sense?
