Run as High Performance Power Plan needs to be able to modify the plan settings appropriately so devices do not sleep.
The Run as High Performance Power Plan option for task sequences does not work properly. Even though it does set the current plan to High Performance, the default values under this plan for standby-timeout-ac (10 minutes) and standby-timeout-d (4 minutes) which is not adequate for most tasksequences to complete before a device sleeps. This option needs to be able to configure the plan to not sleep or hibernate in addition to setting it as the current plan. I've attached a copy of the High Performance power plan for Windows 10 1909 for reference. This power plan is mostly default except for the hibernation settings which we are disabling during the Tasksequence. It would be much nicer to have a single check box be able to keep the devices from sleeping or hibernating during a Tasksequence rather than have to implement work arounds wihtin the tasksequence. Whatever the solution is, it will also needs to be able to handle Connected Standby settings as well as warn when GPOs present might be preventing the changing of plan settings.
Thanks for your feedback.
May I ask which version of Configuration Manager you are using?
Our 2010 release has some improvements to the high performance settings.
NK, if you are seeing client changing plan to 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c, this means your client is not at 2010 level. 2010 binaries no longer change plan to this scheme, they create a temporary plan which sets all timeouts to 0.
@Vladimir @Bob Mac Neill - I've provided many details in my post around why that appears to be inaccurate for S0/Modern Standby machines.
Potential duplicate of:
(I am on CM 2010 and recreated the deployment as noted in the documentation after enabling the high performance setting on the TS)
As of CM 2010 when Task sequence runs with high performance setting checked, standby-timeout-ac, monitor-timeout-ac, and hibernate-timeout-ac settings are all set to 0 for the duration of the task sequence.
2006, however, it does not state whether it's modifying the default high performance plan settings since those are still defaulting to a 10 minute sleep on AC.
