Power Policy for AC only?

I'm assuming this is by design, but there appears to be no way to control Battery power settings on our laptops via ZCM 11 power policies, only AC power settings. This would be ok except that when ZCM applies the power policy at the machine level, some "default" battery settings are also applied which sets a winXP system to sleep at 5 min!!! And a Win7 system sleeps at 15. I cannot adjust this setting. Each policy refresh reverts the settings. I'm having a heck of a time figuring our where those defaults can be adjusted, if anywhere. Has anyone dealt this this who could offer some advice?

I'd be ok with sleep if WinXP didnt have a terrible time keeping Novell mapped drives connected after sleep/hibernate.

Thanks as usual!

Re: Power Policy for AC only?

I've figured out that the Windows 7 policy is "based on" the "Balanced" policy, so adjusting Battery settings there will take effect in the ZCM 11 deployed policy as of the next refresh, but you must therefore configure the settings on the device.

No luck yet figuring out what the Windows XP policy is based on, so we are stuck with 5 min sleep for now. Any ideas?
