Enable users to access power saving settings
I want to allow staff access to set the power saving/screen saver timeouts on their PCs where currently they are denied. I assume this is done via a group policy, but I can't for the life of me find it.
Can some kind soul point me in the right direction please?

The only way I can think of would be to enable access to the Control Panel and then specify what CPLs are available.
User Config > Admin Templates > Control Panel
Show only specified Control Panel applets - Enabled, click the Show button, click Add and enter powercfg.cpl
Make sure Prohibit access to the Control Panel is Disabled or Not Configured
If you'd like to see what other CPL files there are, navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and search for *.cpl. Most you can work out what they are by the file names. Alternatively double clicking most of them will reveal what they are too.

Thanks, I think that will give the access I require.
