group policy

Last Modified: 2014-08-19
at work we have active directory and in one of the groups, the computers are very locked down. I wanted to check a laptop that is in this locked down group and be sure that when you close the lid, it doesn't go to sleep. however, they locked so well that there is nothing in the start menu, and you can't click on the start button and start typing something like control panel because searches return no results.
i tried using psexec using my account or the local auto-signin account with this command

gpresult /h gpresult.html


gpresult /Scope User /v

changing User to Computer but I keep getting

the user domain\user does not have RSOP data  ( domain\user - is the domain name and my login name ). I have even remoted into the computer and tried the GUI


but the search doesn't find that msc. I tried these commands on my laptop and they work. So I'm pretty sure the commands are correct.
any ideas how else to see the group policies applied to a specific computer?
