CM Power Management Plan - Wake Up Timers not working

Recommended Posts

CM Power Plan has an option for desktop computers


when this is applied to collection wakeup timers are disabled! (I can enable them by hand of course - the picture below shows them enabled by hand)

C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /list

Existing Power Schemes (* Active)
Power Scheme GUID: 36afc83e-6d90-4219-9f8d-622c73bb02f6  (Always On)
Power Scheme GUID: 381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e  (Balanced)
Power Scheme GUID: 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c  (High performance)
Power Scheme GUID: a1841308-3541-4fab-bc81-f71556f20b4a  (Power saver)
Power Scheme GUID: db310065-829b-4671-9647-2261c00e86ef  (Customized Peak (ConfigMgr)) *


I could play with GPO Registry entries, but easier is to apply script from here

$PowerSchemes = (powercfg.exe /LIST) | Select-String "power scheme guid" -List
$AllowWakeTimersGUID = ((powercfg.exe /q) | Select-String "(Allow wake timers)").tostring().split(" ") | where {($_.length -eq 36) -and ([guid]$_)} 
foreach ($PowerScheme in $PowerSchemes) {
   $PowerSchemeGUID = $PowerScheme.tostring().split(" ") | where {($_.length -eq 36) -and ([guid]$_)}
   foreach ($Argument in ("/SETDCVALUEINDEX $PowerSchemeGUID SUB_SLEEP $AllowWakeTimersGUID 1","/SETACVALUEINDEX $PowerSchemeGUID SUB_SLEEP $AllowWakeTimersGUID 1")) {
    Start-Process powercfg.exe -ArgumentList $Argument -Wait -Verb runas -WindowStyle Hidden}}

Not an ideal, as I would expect that Enabled really means Enabled

Anybody else noticed it?
