The registry location you need is :

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\4f971e89-eebd-4455-a8de-9e59040e7347\5ca83367-6e45-459f-a27b-476b1d01c936

You have four setting options
0 = Do nothing
1 = Standby
2 = Hibernate
3 = Shutdown

Are you saying that you've pushed a GPO for the setting you want and it's just not being applied?
