I'm trying to set the monitor power options on a users computer to not turn off after 20 minutes and it's saying "access is denied". I logged in as administrator, did the changes and it still isn't working. I then made registry changes under power policies from 0 to a value of 3 for always on and it's still not working, any suggestions?

is this computer part of a domain? if so there may be group policy settings effecting the power usage..

if not...another thing to try is to modify the power settings as an administrator...then save it as a new scheme (with a new name than one that's already listed)...then when you log on as the regular user see if you can select that scheme
