Power options on XP client

By lolpeacock ·
I have a server running Win 2003 server and my clients run XP pro. If I log on as admin on the client machines I can change the power options (Always on, Presentation etc), but when I log on as a user the options have changed back(the same goes for Ctrl+Alt+Del and other options too) Do I have to change Group policies and if so, where? Is it on the server or on the client? Detailed answers would be much appreciated as i've had "If you don't know, you shouldn't be touching" type answers before. Everyone has to learn don't they. Cheers guys.

Yes i'm trying to access from the control panel on the client and i'm pretty sure that a GPO was used to disable certain options on all clients (power options, ctrl+alt+del, access to the "C" drive etc)
