Hi, I normally prepare my images in Audit mode but have some software that needs to be setup as an end user. My clean install of Win10 logs me in as Administrator. Since I don't want the system to Sleep, I've created a Power Scheme that prevents this. ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME.cmd: Spoiler: ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME.cmd Code: @echo off SetLocal :: Get GUID of current power scheme FOR /F "tokens=4" %%G IN ('powercfg /getactivescheme') DO set activeschemeGUID=%%G :: Custom Power Scheme Name set custom_name=ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME :: Copy current active scheme and get GUID of that copy FOR /F "tokens=4" %%G IN ('powercfg -DUPLICATESCHEME %activeschemeGUID%') DO set custom_GUID=%%G :: Change the name of the new scheme (the copy) to the custom name powercfg -CHANGENAME %custom_GUID% %custom_name% :SetCustomActive powercfg -SETACTIVE %custom_GUID% set activeschemeGUID=%custom_GUID% POWERCFG /CHANGE monitor-timeout-ac 0 POWERCFG /CHANGE disk-timeout-ac 0 POWERCFG /CHANGE standby-timeout-ac 0 POWERCFG /CHANGE hibernate-timeout-ac 0 EndLocal exit /b 0 - Once I have installed everything, I want to restore the Power Scheme back to Balanced, remove the created ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME and Sysprep the system. In my Sysprep.cmd I do the above, even giving it a reboot. On reboot the Power Scheme is set to Balanced and ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME is removed. When I sysprep & log in as a normal user, ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME is set. Spoiler: Sysprep.cmd Code: @echo off :: ===== Set Power Scheme to Default (Balanced) if not in Audit Mode ===================================================================== set custom_name=ALL_ON_POWER_SCHEME :: Check if Custom Plan exists, get its GUID FOR /F "tokens=4" %%G IN ('powercfg -list ^| find "%custom_name%"') DO ( REM custom power scheme with that name already exists set custom_GUID=%%G goto GotCustom ) goto Done :GotCustom :: Set Balanced Power Scheme POWERCFG /SETACTIVE 381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e :: Delete Custom Plan POWERCFG /DELETE %custom_GUID% SHUTDOWN -R -F -T 10 /C "System will now Reboot, please re-run Sysprep.cmd" exit /b 0 :Done start /wait Powercfg -restoredefaultschemes start /wait c:\windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep.exe /oobe /quit /unattend:c:\windows\System32\Sysprep\sysprep.xml (goto) 2>nul & del "%~f0" & shutdown -r -f -t 10 What's going on? How do I get rid of this? Thanks!
