Server: Windows server 2003.
Workstations: Windows XP
Mandatory roaming profiles.
All computers login as the same user.
I do not want the computers to go into standby or hibernate or turn off the monitor.
I have configured mandatory profiles, set the workstations into 'Presentation' scheme, and even went into Group Policy and enable the deletion of cached profile and the updating of roaming profles on the server.
When I inspect the setting on the workstations, they show presentation mode and have 'Never' for all the settings. This should mean that they never turn off the monitor or hibernate, correct?
Out of 10 computers, 4 stay on and the others either turn off the monitor of hibernate.
Any ideas? To my understanding, the power settings are stored in the user's profile. Originally, I changed the CPU driver to 'Standard PC' to get rid of all ACPI controls; however, I now want these settings in order to automatically power down the work stations and other features. I have changed the driver back to ACPI.
