The Power CSP and other ADMX-backed policies were introduced starting in Windows 10 version 1709, however you should stick to the latest version in order to have support for all of the policies. Microsoft allowed ADMX-backed policies to be deployed using CSPs and have added built-in support for Internet Explorer.
This is a sample of some of the Power CSPs which you can deploy to your devices. To deploy this sample, navigate to Devices & User > Profile > Add > Windows > Desktop > Device > Custom Settings, then copy and paste the SyncML into the box and publish the profile.
These are all ADMX-backed policies and require special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.
- Modify the values inside of the data tags.
- Change the target of the policies to either device or user. Inside of you will want to change to either ./Device/ or ./User/ but be careful as some policies support User, Device, or Both, you can reference which are support by going to the Power CSP Documentation .
Basic Steps for Obtaining Data ID and Values for ADMX-backed Policies
- Open the ADMX template (Power.admx) file at C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions
- Open RegEdit and go to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Power, or to the CSP you are wanting to work with.
- Click on the matching setting, then copy the RegKeyPathRedirect
- Paste/Find in the ADMX template (Power.admx), then scroll down and find the data ID
- This is your data ID and your value is in seconds (depending on your policy, the tag should tell you your data type, in this case its decimals)
