    wireless power gpo settings

    Greetings,

    I have a user power profile setup and ive noticed after reading through the power managmenent policy whitepaper that im missing a part that controls power save mode for the wireless adapter.

    I have gone through the power policy and these are the only settings i can see in gpo.

    This is what im missing, not worried about the rest, just the wireless adapter settings.

    Even when i install policy manager onto a laptop and manage the policy from there it still does not appear as an option.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    james

    Yep, I've encountered missing settings too. For us it was the ability to allow the computer to wake for scheduled tasks (which is disabled by default).

    My impression is that not all the settings in Windows 7 are actually supported in GPP. However, I've not seen any explanation of why this is the case other than usual one; that GPP is still the bastard step-child compared to Group Policy due to it being bought in from PolicyMaker.

    agreed, i cant see why it wouldnt be there. I might have to search the registry but not sure where to start and im not sure if the particular setting i need is under the class/network settings or if its controlled by a different part of the os.

    A different option, would be to export a configured power scheme to a .pow file, then use GPP to pass it to all the windows 7 PCs, and then use powercfg to import and set the scheme to active?

    Powercfg Command-Line Options
