I have decided to test out Windows Thin PC, as I heard that it's a lightweight version of Windows based on Windows 7. I have run into a problem however, and that is that I am unable to change the power plan from the system tray. I installed this twice; Once on a virtual machine (Oracle VM Virtualbox) and once on a Samsung R60+ laptop. The annoyance is that when I click on the battery, the available power plans are grayed out with the message 'Some settings are managed by your system administrator'.
In order to change power plan settings, I have to go to 'Power settings' in the control panel and select 'Change settings that are currently unavailable'. This is the only way I can change the plan.
I followed the steps in the following guide to no avail: Power Plan - Specify a Default for All Users
The accounts on both machines are members of the local administrators group.
The machines are not on a domain.
The Samsung laptop has no power management software installed.
If you want any more info, feel free to let me know.
Sorry if I put this in the wrong area.
Thanks in advance.
