I need it to change the following states in 'Power Options Properties' on the Advanced tab.

this will then stop the kids from putting the machine in to sleep mode or switch the machine off while the teacher has control to the machine using remote classroom management software (Viglen Classlink 7).

Why not disable the hotkey functions through GPO or better still change the keyboards?

Yes, makes sense. It may be difficult to make a ADM template for anything other than a hard coded configuration as it looks like a large number of settings are stored as binary values inside the single key.
The power switch policies seem to be located here but regmon goes nuts when you hit apply so I could be wrong:

there will be adm files on the server, you can just open these in notepad to see whats in them.

These are only the first lines to do with the shutdown button, there are many more lines of values in the key, I have highlighted the differences:
"AcPolicy"=hex:01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00 ,10,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,\ disabled
"AcPolicy"=hex:01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00 ,00,00,00,80,00,00,00,00,03,\ works
