    Is anyone familiar with this issue...I am trying to configure the power
    option settings in Windows XP Pro via a group policy
    ( and I'm unable to add a group
    and/or a user to the documented registry subkey. How do I set this permission
    using a GPO or script during the login process?

    Using a Group Policy (Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings -->
    Security Settings --> Registry) doesn't seem to work. FYI...If I manually add
    the group and/or user prior to logon it works perfectly. What am I missing?

    have you confirmed that the GPO settings that assign registry permissions
    have actually been applied to target computers (by reviewing output of
    RSOP.MSC or gpresults)?

    Your response made me revisit the GP Results and I found that the Computer
    Configuration of the GPO was being denied access due to security filtering.
    Originally I had only a specific group listed. This particular GPO is linked
    to the domain, so I added "Authenticated Users" to the security filtering and
    the issue is now resolved.
