      Hi,
      I’m using windows server 2008 R2 as workstation and everything is fine.
      I just can’t select any Power plan from the tray icon as normal user!
      I’ve been looking for a solution for a long time. I found that this has something to do with “Group Policy”. But i didn’t find anything in “Group Policy” related to this.

      Thanks for any help, sorry for my bad english!

      Ciao ciao

      Thanks for reply.
      In that post I can read:

      I assume your user account is a member of the Administrator group?

      Well… my account is not member of the Administrator group and I don’t want that to happen. Anyway I tried that solution, but it didn’t work.

      Also, have you tried to select a predefined power scheme in Group Policy Editor?

      I tried, it doesn’t fix it (but I did’n do a reboot), and I don’t understand why it should work.

      I’m going to give up, I tried many tricks, I made some changes in regedit too, but nothing changed.

      Thanks a lot. I saw you opened that thread, have you solved?

      thanks, bye bye

      Nope. I tried a few things mentioned in the last post, but none of them worked, so I kind of gave up. I don’t really switch between power plans anyway, so it isn’t a huge issue for me, I just wanted to know if this was normal for R2.
