    Below is what we use, the instructions below are to do an individual laptop or pc but we put the exact same settings into a GPO and they work fine for us.


    Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\ControlsFol
    der\PowerCfg\GlobalPowerPolicy


    On the Security menu, click Permissions. Either add the users separately,
    or add the users' group and give all the users full control over this
    key.


    Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\ControlsFol
    der\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies


    On the Security menu, click Permissions.
    Either add the users separately, or add the user s' group and give all
    the users full control over this key.


    In addition, users need to be given the right to shut down the system.
    To accomplish this, follow these steps:


    a. In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then
    double-click "Local Security Policy".


    b. In the left pane, expand Local Policies and click User Rights
    Assignment.


    c. In the right pane, double-click "Shut down the system", and add each
    user individually or add the Users group to this local security policy.
    Making these changes will allow normal users to alter power scheme settings
    without being added to the Local Administrators group.
