Green is the color of the decade, at least for the moment. What can you do from a Group Policy perspective? More than you might think. What do you do to manage power settings with Group Policy? Answer in the comments.
Before Al Gore warned about the plight of the polar bear, GP admins could configure power management with ADMX settings delivered for Vista.
With Vista SP1 / Windows Server 2008, Group Policy delivered Group Policy Preferences. This introduced the ability to configure user settings as an admin with the underlying plumbing of policy.
And in Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2, admins can configure power plans for Vista and beyond. So here’s the question: what do you do manage power? Do you configure power settings for XP using Group Policy Preferences? Respond if you do (or don’t!) in the comments.
Thanks for your feedback,
LiliaG, Group Policy PM
