Power Settings Via GPO

I have a machine on an SBS 2008 domain that I need to prevent from hibernating/sleep mode. The PC is win7  and I would like to administer the change via GPO however when I browse the Group Policy Management console on the server I only see power options for Windows XP, no mention of vista or 7.

Any ideas?

You may need to apply rollups and patches to enable the GPO

Something I found that may apply to you:

A note from a fellow frustrated SBS user; In the SBS Console is the ability to turn on power management to vista and higher operating systems. It's under Network / Computers / Enable Power management in Vista

 Click enable, then run a gpupdate on the server from the command prompt. After which, Go to each work station, run gpupdate and check the setting again, at that point it should be enabled again.
