    hi all, i've been given the task of creating new power settings for our laptop's, approx 500 of them. i have tried the EZ GPO application but it wasnt working 100% of the time.

    So i've made a little logon batch file which starts on login but the users at work dont have the required permissions to change the registry keys.i'm using the powercfg.exe switch. It works under administrator but not for a general user.

    anyone know of a way of adding or allowing the batch file to run as admin?:blink

    i tried the runas /user:administrator command , that worked but then stops and doesnt continue with the rest of the batch file.

    Have you tried using a Startup script instead of the log on script?

    Tried it but still unable to to change due to the permissions on the user account.

    Can you apply the startup script to the computer objects in AD rather than the users?

    hey sparky,

    nope doesnt work either. i'm starting to think i might have to make it a vbs script, i've read i can add admin credentials in there.

    Yup, you can do that in vbs however the password is in plain text so if someone opened the script in notepad then they would have access to the admin password.

    There may be some other way you can do this though :hhhmmm

    you could use Xor to encrypt or a base64 encoding to hide the plain text, both could be easily over come by someone who knows what they are doing though.

    Base64
    Xor
