Windows 7: How to fix Group Policy not applying for Sleep Settings?

How to fix Group Policy not applying for Sleep Settings?

Our GP settings for our Power Options are set to 'Never" sleep on all our Windows 7 machines. All our GP settings apply perfectly on our Dell desktops and have never had any issues until now. We've ordered newer Dell desktops but still running Win 7.

Once I place them on the domain and move them into the correct OU, the power options settings will get applied. However, some of the new desktops are not applying the settings.

I've tried re-adding it to our domain and no luck.

Anybody know how I can fix it locally?

I don't have ability to create the power plan manually because that gets locked down once on the domain. Just need a way to apply the sleep setting from the Domain Controller.
