We would like to set our new XP machines default power setting so the HD never shuts off. They are on a domain of about 100 computers. Can anyone suggest a quick and easy way to do this?

there's no default method in AD so you've got to get a plugin to do it

I don't have any quick solutions, but you can try making a modified registry key and putting on the network drive. This will allow each user to run it - if they have regedit access.
