  1. Changing default power settings for Windows 10 deployment.


    Hello everyone,


    I've been struggling to find a way to set the default power plan AND power mode for any new Windows 10 computers that get imaged through MDT. As far as I can tell, 'power plan' is the options you can see in the Control Panel, whereas 'power mode' is the different settings on the slider visible after clicking the battery icon in the system tray. What I would like to do is have the power plan set to Balanced and the power mode set to Better Battery regardless of whether or not the laptop is plugged into a charger.


    If I take a snapshot of the registry on a particular computer, then manually adjust the power settings, and then take an additional registry snapshot to compare, there seem to be three registry entries that control these settings:


    [Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\User\PowerSchemes]

    "ActivePowerScheme"

    "ActiveOverlayAcPowerScheme"

    "ActiveOverlayDcPowerScheme"


    'ActivePowerScheme' seems to be the setting you can adjust in the Control Panel, with the GUID "381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e" correlating to the 'Balanced' power plan. The other two registry keys represent the value of the slider after clicking the battery icon one for battery, one for power adapter, with "961cc777-2547-4f9d-8174-7d86181b8a7a" correlating to the 'Better Battery' power mode.


    If I try to edit the values for these keys through a .reg file or through various reg add commands I get access denied errors. I looked through Group Policy for a way to set this and there is a GPO that will set the value of 'ActivePowerScheme', but there is no GPO for the other two. When I image a computer right now, the power settings default to 'Balanced/Better performance'. Has anyone had success changing this value without having to go through each computer one at a time?

    :)

    Thank you for the quick response. We will now move to the second phase of troubleshooting. We suggest that you follow the steps provided below:

    Method 1: Run the Power Troubleshooter.

    • In the search box, type troubleshooting, and then click
      Troubleshooting
      .
    • Click on the view all option on the left panel.
    • Run the Power troubleshooter.

    Method 2: Customize Power options.

    If issue persists, the the following steps and check.

    • In the search box, type Power options, and then click.
    • Click on choose when to turn off display from the left pane.
    • Click on Restore default settings for this plan.
    • Click on Change advance power settings.
    • Scroll down and expand Power buttons and lid.
    • Expand Power button actions.
    • Click on the Setting and set it to Shut down.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.

    Changing default power settings for Windows 10 deployment.

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive

    Hello -
    Thanks for the return. Before I undertake changing the Registry, I have a question.
    The steps in my Registry, for my version of Windows 10, were a bit different, but I think I eventually got to the right spot.
    The last step is to change the number of places you want to list in Recent Places. In my case, the default Max Display listed 50 as the number. So, if I were to change that number, how do I know the Save As page will be one of those places? Or, a similar question, will this registry change delete the tab Recent from my Save As page? This is what I would like to happen.
    When I received my computer in Nov. 2016, the Recent tab was not listed in the Save As page. Something caused it to be added over time. Which brings me to this second question. Would there be any benefit in deleting the changed registry listing and reverting back to the default listing? See attachment.
