Windows 10 Power settings not being applied

    Question

  • Hello,

    I've spend so many hours on this and can't figure it out.

    I'm simply trying to create a power plan for our Windows 10 laptops so when the lip is shut it does nothing.

    So I have created a test OU and blocked inheritance and created a GPO on my Window 10 PC with RSAT installed and set these settings regarding the lid.  I've set them under user and/or computer and on the laptop is says they are being applied when I run gpresults, but when I go to the power settings they are not being applied.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Please try to upgrade the newest drivers for "display adapters" and windows updates to see if it helps.

    Besides, you could try "Powercfg Command-Line Options"

    Related registry location is here in win10:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}

  • I think the laptops image is corrupt.  

    Always says "Some settings are managed by your system administrator"

    I'm an admin on the domain and locally and the user and computer are in an OU the blocks inheritance.

    Is there are something in the registry I can do to change/check this?
