Default Windows XP Pro power settings help.

Hello,

I'm looking for a technical explaination as to how Power settings are
"managed" for Windows XP Pro users in a Win2k3 AD environment. We are
starting to remove local Admin rights to users and now find we have issues
with the power settings we thought were configured.

When are power settings per machine and when are they per user???

Is there a good GPO available for managing power settings?

Thanks,
Troy

I have not tried this myself but take a look at the free ENERGY STAR's free
EZ GPO that is supposed to allow you to manage power settings through Group
Policy but I don't know offhand to what extent. --- Steve
