Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting manages whether or not Windows is allowed to use standby states when putting the computer in a sleep state.

If you enable or do not configure this policy setting, Windows uses standby states to put the computer in a sleep state.

If you disable this policy setting, standby states (S1-S3) are not allowed.

Tip

This is an ADMX-backed policy and requires a special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.

You must specify the data type in the SyncML as <Format>chr</Format>. For an example SyncML, refer to Enabling a policy.

The payload of the SyncML must be XML-encoded; for this XML encoding, there are a variety of online encoders that you can use. To avoid encoding the payload, you can use CDATA if your MDM supports it. For more information, see CDATA Sections.
