Question

Locked

ALWAYS ON

By cmdx2 ·
Are there configurations in AD and/or registry that will keep a public computer (internal) to be ?ALWAYS ON? for all users? I have tried to change the power options in the control panel as well as registry but to no avail. What can I do?

Always on.

There are three places:
1. Power Options
2. Display settings, screen saver settings, Monitor settings
3. BIOS Power Management settings.

I tried those locations however when a new users logs on for the first time it retorts to home/office which allows sleep mode. Are there any other suggestions you may have?
Thanks

if it's user account problems

mandatory profiles for all users of the public computer

OR you can setup 1 user account with a mandatory profile that everyone uses. It is a public computer so... why have hundreds of user profiles?

I agree with your reply however the focus is the power option. Although public (internal) user need access to files thus multiple profiles... (my interpretation of 'PUBLIC' was not clear)...

Group Policy

by CG IT In reply to ALWAYS ON

you can create a GPO that configures the power options and apply that to all users. Further restrict user access to the power options.

that is if this is an Active Directory environment.

you can also use local machine policy, but if this is AD, then AD GP will take precedence over the local machine policy.
