PowerEnumerate function

Enumerates the specified elements in a power scheme. This function is normally called in a loop incrementing the Index parameter to retrieve subkeys until they've all been enumerated.

Syntax

DWORD PowerEnumerate(
  HKEY                RootPowerKey,
  const GUID          *SchemeGuid,
  const GUID          *SubGroupOfPowerSettingsGuid,
  POWER_DATA_ACCESSOR AccessFlags,
  ULONG               Index,
  UCHAR               *Buffer,
  DWORD               *BufferSize
);

Parameters

RootPowerKey

This parameter is reserved for future use and must be set to NULL.

SchemeGuid

The identifier of the power scheme. If this parameter is NULL, an enumeration of the power policies is returned.

SubGroupOfPowerSettingsGuid

The subgroup of power settings. If this parameter is NULL, an enumeration of settings under the PolicyGuid key is returned.

Value Meaning
NO_SUBGROUP_GUID
fea3413e-7e05-4911-9a71-700331f1c294
Settings in this subgroup will be part of the default power scheme.
GUID_DISK_SUBGROUP
0012ee47-9041-4b5d-9b77-535fba8b1442
Settings in this subgroup control power management configuration of the system's hard disk drives.
GUID_SYSTEM_BUTTON_SUBGROUP
4f971e89-eebd-4455-a8de-9e59040e7347
Settings in this subgroup control configuration of the system power buttons.
GUID_PROCESSOR_SETTINGS_SUBGROUP
54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00
Settings in this subgroup control configuration of processor power management features.
GUID_VIDEO_SUBGROUP
7516b95f-f776-4464-8c53-06167f40cc99
Settings in this subgroup control configuration of the video power management features.
GUID_BATTERY_SUBGROUP
e73a048d-bf27-4f12-9731-8b2076e8891f
Settings in this subgroup control battery alarm trip points and actions.
GUID_SLEEP_SUBGROUP
238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20
Settings in this subgroup control system sleep settings.
GUID_PCIEXPRESS_SETTINGS_SUBGROUP
501a4d13-42af-4429-9fd1-a8218c268e20
Settings in this subgroup control PCI Express settings.

AccessFlags

A set of flags that specifies what will be enumerated

Value Meaning
ACCESS_SCHEME
16
Enumerate power schemes. The SchemeGuid and SubgroupOfPowerSettingsGuid parameters will be ignored.
ACCESS_SUBGROUP
17
Enumerate subgroups under SchemeGuid. The SubgroupOfPowerSettingsGuid parameter will be ignored.
ACCESS_INDIVIDUAL_SETTING
18
Enumerate individual power settings under SchemeGuid\SubgroupOfPowerSettingsGuid. To enumerate power settings directly under the SchemeGuid key, use NO_SUBGROUP_GUID as the SubgroupOfPowerSettingsGuid parameter.

Index

The zero-based index of the scheme, subgroup, or setting that is being enumerated.

Buffer

A pointer to a variable to receive the elements. If this parameter is NULL, the function retrieves the size of the buffer required.

BufferSize

A pointer to a variable that on input contains the size of the buffer pointed to by the Buffer parameter. If the Buffer parameter is NULL or if the BufferSize is not large enough, the function will return ERROR_MORE_DATA and the variable receives the required buffer size.

Return Value

Returns ERROR_SUCCESS (zero) if the call was successful, and a nonzero value if the call failed. If the buffer size passed in the BufferSize parameter is too small, or if the Buffer parameter is NULL, ERROR_MORE_DATA will be returned and the DWORD pointed to by the BufferSize parameter will be filled in with the required buffer size.
