Disable NIC power management settings

(imported topic written by SystemAdmin)

I am looking for a way that we can disable network power managment settings (Allow computer to turn off this device to save power). We would need to have this available for all Windows OS (2000, XP, Vista, 7).

mpeterso, were you able to use the KB article and find a way to use BigFix to make the change across all systems? Addressing systems with multiple NICs appears to be the biggest difficulty (aside from iterating through possible interface numbers).

Anyone know how to do this for XP and 7 specifically ?
