Wireless Network Adaptor Setting

Hi All,

I want to ensure that on our laptops that the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option is unticked. I've tried to deploy the attached GPO but it hasnt worked. I followed Microsofts article on how to stop the box being ticked but the article was made for XP.

The setting is successfully being written to the test laptop but the option to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is still ticked?

Help!

(Also i've deployed the High Performance power plan via GP so if that helps this issue then let me know!)

This page has a script for manually doing it, but I think you could modify it so you could run it as a logon script from GPO.

I've ran the script and it works fine on my own laptop but you need to ensure execution policy is unrestricted and also it needs Powershell to run as admin. How would I deploy a .ps1 via GP? is it the same way as you would do a normal logon script? Also would it even run correctly via a GPO considering I needed to amend the execution policy and run PS as admin...

You can sign the script with a cert that is trusted, which you also deploy via GPO.

That is what we did here, works quite well.

It needs the cert if you don't want to have to disable signing across the board.

I recommend using the signing, as disabling it would allow a user to run any powershell script they happen to download off the Internet.
