Specify a custom active power plan

This policy setting specifies the active power plan from a specified power plan’s GUID. The GUID for a custom power plan GUID can be retrieved by using powercfg the power configuration command line tool. If you enable this policy setting you must specify a power plan specified as a GUID using the following format: XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX (For example 103eea6e-9fcd-4544-a713-c282d8e50083) indicating the power plan to be active. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting users can see and change this setting.
