    Hey up all mi fellow MDL'ers

    Bored so messing about with Windows 8.1 and REG Edits.
    I have a couple I can't seem to get right but finding out I am not authorised to access some, overcoming that.

    Hey Oh.

    What I am here for isssssssssssss

    Been looking on webland to figure out how to set my Power Options so they are sat ready from a fresh install.

    First thing I do is set the Power Options to "High Performance" and set "Turn the display off" "Never"

    Is there a way to do this via a REG edit or .cmd come RUNONCE command to have my settings how I like it.

    Cheers...:confused:

    Well..

    Exporting the saved power plan then changing the power plan manually then running a .cmd to import the save plan does not make it the selected plan but it is sort of just sat there waiting to be manually selected. Sort of defeats the whole point of what I am trying to do.

    Must be barking up the wrong tree. as usual..:rolleyes:

    You have to use powercfg to make power options that you change in a plan active.
    I haven't personally tried it, but I suggest making changes to your plan by either modifying things and then setactive'ing them or import then setactive
    I would HIGHLY recommend against modifying things that are not modifiable with the existing GUI controls though.
    Code:
    powercfg -SETACTIVE {guidScheme2}
    I disabled core parking with powercfg mods just to test it before, and it crashed my system when using vmware...
    So just be careful what you modify.

    Cheers for that reply.

    Will look at that but it probebly sounds like it will be best left to be set manually.
