Configure Power Management Options in Intune through OMA-URI

In this blog post I will show you how to configure the Power Management options in Intune for Windows 10 devices. We will use OMA-URI settings to configure different features in Intune.

In Microsoft Intune, you can manage your Windows 10 devices very well. You can add or create custom settings for your Windows 10 devices using “custom profiles”. The custom profiles are a feature in Intune. You use custom profiles to add device settings and features that aren’t built in to Intune.

Windows 10 custom profiles use Open Mobile Alliance Uniform Resource Identifier (OMA-URI) settings to configure different features. These settings are typically used by mobile device manufacturers to control features on the device.

Within the Intune portal we will create a new profile with the following information. To create a new profile in Intune.

  1. Nevermind, fixed it. Remembered seeing a similar problem in the past so I said to myself : “What the heck” and replaced the ” by ”

    Must be a keyboard or language thing… works properly now!

    • Thank you… I had already tried copying it in and out of notepad… but that had not worked… then scrolled down and saw this. Perfect! cheers

  2. As simple as this seems to be, it’s not working for me (standard remediation failed error). Is it because there are no other plan than Dell on my laptop? Will try a few more things…

  4. Refer to the security baseline policy available on the Intune portal under “Intune” –> device security” and apply it to a user group. OMA-URI is the thing of the past to a large extent and is too timeconsuming to build and apply.

    • When are power management settings, sleep etc exclusively for security. I’m not convinced that your suggestion applies here.
      OMA-URI aren’t really a thing of the past when there are literally no settings for certain scenarios.
      Information like this shouldn’t be simply cast asunder when it falls outside a narrow scope of understanding. IMO there is a lot of info about OMA-URI applied policies. A lot of that information is hard for most people to decipher.

      • I had a look at Device Security / Windows 10 Security Baselines / MDM Security Baseline for May 2019 – Profiles, I went ahead and created a profile. I couldn’t locate any policies that matched up with OnBattery / PluggedIn for traditional Power Settings. What I did find was the following 4:

        ->Require password on wake while plugged in
        ->Standby states when sleeping while on battery
        ->Standby states when sleeping while plugged in
        ->Require password on wake while on battery

        All have the following options:
        Not Configured / Enabled / Disabled

        So I would say OMA-URI is the way to go for old granular Power Settings. It’s almost like we’re stuck waiting until they move the Power Settings into modern Settings rather then Control Panel…

        I also noticed that MSFT is planning on pulling out the GUI options for “Fast first sign-in” under Device Configuration / Shared multi-user device. It’s quite possible whenever this happens you’ll have to use the OMA-URI to set it again. UNLESS, they plan on removing Fast first sign-in in future builds of Windows 10 20H1 or later releases… Who knows, maybe the regular Shared PC Mode might be slightly revamped to already include the Fast first sign-in mode to some extent…it is buggy in my experience… One item I’ve noticed was sound didn’t work until 2nd login on a Dell Latitude 3190…

          • I had the same error.

            Take note of the quote marks. I changed from ” to ” all in 1 line, then it worked perfectly 😀
            (Can’t be seen in this editor. Copy/paste to notepad and re-type the “)

            E.g.
            <enabled/><data id=”EnterACHibernateTimeOut” value=”0″/>

            • I tried your solution but this also did not work:

              I have this now:

              Name:
              StandbyTimeoutOnBattery
              OMA-URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Power/StandbyTimeoutOnBattery
              Value:
