    Hi there,

    Running Win2k on one of our PCs, I find I can change the Power Options for the Administrator user, but not for other users. With guest users I get the error message "Power Policy Manager unable to set active policy: Access is Denied"

    Any ideas how to get around this? I'm trying to cut our electricity usage, this seems to be the only computer that won't play ball.

    Many thanks

    Nick Sandberg

    The only thing I can think of is you are not logged in on the Administrative account. The change you make there should apply globally -- the limited account should pick it up.
