Powerplan setting by unattend.xml

11 posts in this topic

Has anyone noticed that you can't set the powerplan (high performance or other) by WSIM(WAIK) in Windows 7? I'm using the latest WAIK.

Whatever I tried, the default powerplan is always set.

Use a script on oobeSystem to set the power plan, it will "fix" it.

Hi Cluberti

That's what I thought. I'm running powercfg by setupcomplete.cmd from the scripts folder

I asked this in another thread .

What is the proper way of running a batch file using wsim?

I want to add script batch file (*.cmd) execution by running a synchronous command at oobe step.

I know that it should start with "cmd /c ....", but what about the path? I don't have a network share I could use. Environment variables maybe? I don't want the batch files to be copied on the computer I'm installing, I'd rather run them directly from the dvd. Is that possible???

It's possible, but you'll still need a "stub" cmd to launch it on the local disk. In general, I use a .cmd file that does a simple for loop to find a file that will be on the CD, and assign any drive letter it finds that file on to the CD drive as an environment variable, for example, looking for a CD.txt file at the root of the CD drive that I place in my ISO before burning:

FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\CD.txt SET CDROM=%%

Howdy, has anyone figured out how to set this via unattended. I have tried WAIK and just tried adding a key in my HKLM.reg file and neither worked. If the answer is a script with powercfg.exe how do you run that? I am trying to set the monitor to turn off after ten minutes and leave everything else on all the time. Thank you for any help on the matter. Have a good one.

include these in a .cmd file or in <FirstLogonCommands>

REM High performance

POWERCFG -SETACTIVE 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c

REM monitor to turn off after ten minutes

POWERCFG -Change -monitor-timeout-ac 10

Hey Max, thanks a bunch for the reply. I should be able to use that command. Will that also keep the system from entering standby? Also, is it possible to create a custom power scheme where everything is set to never turn off or idle and import that, or is that what High Performance will do? Thanks again, have a good day.

you will have to use Cmd /c POWERCFG with these unless they are in a .cmd file

My settings

POWERCFG -SETACTIVE 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c

POWERCFG -X -monitor-timeout-ac 120

POWERCFG -X -disk-timeout-ac 120

POWERCFG -X -standby-timeout-ac 120

POWERCFG -X -hibernate-timeout-ac 120

or hibernate OFF

POWERCFG -H OFF

Thanks again Max. I am going to try the commands manually in a moment. Apologies for being tedious. Have a good one.

I have used them as above and is working on a UA and will work anyways. Better yet my hard drive no longer thrashing off/on setting these to 120 minutes. Now if I could get it to quit spinning up dvd when I open explorer be a good thing.

Many thanks!

Seems the best way to change power settings with Autounattend.xml file! Tested and works really fine.
