Previously I wrote about power problems I am having with WXP and Zen. I
had a response, but with information I already had. Here's the thread of
troubleshooting I've done. It seems something in Zen is causing this
issue. DLU is configured as well as Roaming Profiles, but nowhere is
anything configured for power management in the workstation policies....
Here's the steps i've taken, the initial problem is below:

I've done that with some success. Here's the scoop:
I made sure no policies from ZEN were configured for any power settings.
I logged in as an admin user (with local admin rights)
1) modified power policy under .default (1min monitor off)
2) logged out - waited 1 minute.... policy worked.
3) logged back in as same user. logged out. again, 1 minute worked.
4) logged back in, created a new user on server (with non admin rights)
5) logged out - waited 1 minute, monitor shut down.
6) logged in as new user, logging out each time the power policy still
*7) i restarted the computer. this seems to cause the issue.
8) on restart, policy before logging in worked.
9) logged in as admin user, then logged out.
10) this is where it broke. machine never went to monitor off mode.

In starting over, I can recreate this each time. It seems after a restart
and first user login/logout the thing doesn't revert back.
I checked the registry each login and found the settings were still intact.

Any ideas?
