I have created a Power Policy based on the Balanced Power Policy, with a couple of modifications for the power button and closing the lid. I have noticed an issue when users attempt to modify the option in control panel to change when their screen turns
What happens is if the user changes it to 1 minute, from the default of 2 minutes, the control panel saves it and performs correctly, if the user goes back into control panel, the settings reflect what the user wanted.
If the user reboots their machine, the display will still power off after 1 minute, which is what the user wanted, but if they enter into the control panel, the settings show 2 minutes. As long as the user does not save the settings (clicks cancel instead),
the screen will turn off after 1 minute of activity correctly.
My issue is that the control panel "Power Options" utility does not reflect what is currently set when you go to the screen settings.
I have already followed the advice in KB 935799 to set the preferred power policy to be the customized one, and it does change the default behaviour when you open the "Change what the power buttons do" and "Change what happens when you close
the lid" to what it should be (which was not the case before the advise in the KB article).
