Power Plan keeps resetting
We have a Windows 7 machine setup as a display (it's connected to a plasma TV). For some reason, the power plan keeps resetting to default settings even though no-one can use the PC (there's no keyboard or mouse, we remote into it) and it's never turned off.
At first, I tried to set the the time-out settings to "never" as we don't want the monitor or the PC going to sleep, but the monitor setting kept going back to 20mins. So I tried creating a custom power plan, and now the PC goes back to the default plan.
I can't see why this is happening, the account the PC is logged in with has admin rights (to the PC) and its a tad annoying as the PC is used for a welcome theme'd display but turns off every 20mins.

Have you tryed adjusting the settings whilst logged on locally and not remotely? Also you could try manually editting the registry files.

Yep, the first couple of times were changed locally.
Good idea on the registry, I'll have a go.
