Group Policies – Windows 2000 Server – Power settings on laptops

Our school has a Windows 2000 Server, various 9x workstations, and 25 laptops with Windows 2000. The laptops are in a cart and are shared by five classrooms of students (grades 5 to 8). Each student has his own login and we’re using roaming user profiles.
My problem is this: I want to change the power management settings on the laptops to increase the time before blanking the screen, increase the time before going to standby, etc. When I log onto the laptops as administrator and change the settings, the settings don’t apply when a student logs on. Students can’t change the settings because they don’t have access. I’m thinking the best way to set those settings is with a group policy. All the laptops are in a group. I have not been able to find these power settings in the group policies. I have searched through the settings but have not found the power management. Does someone know exactly what I need to do?
