    Power settings specific for a user.

    Hi All

    We have a teaching account we use here that all staff use. We want to have the screensaver and standby disabled when that account is logged in as it causes problems with staff playing videos or long powerpoints etc.

    We want this specific to the account so when the account is logged off the screensaver and standby still work on other users and when not logged in.

    Any ideas?

    Many Thanks

    Maybe you could use a logon/logoff script with commands to enable and disable them.

    Eg, enable/disable screensaver:

    Manage power saving:

    Also you could use the EZ GPO Tool . It does power settings by user and computer...

    cheers
