    Tried it two ways: Ran the script/shortcut+restart and made the change manually+restart (option 3 and 1)

    After running the script and restarting, the setting stuck at Do Nothing (display and behavior)... at least until policy resets it again in <1hr.
    After a manual change, the setting also stayed at Do Nothing (display and behavior).

    (But... It defeats the purpose if i have to reboot to get my 'please dont turn off!' action to work ;) )

    wonder if there's a way to 'apply' or 'activate' after making the change, maybe /SETACTIVE on the current scheme?? Will investigate once i get reset...

    /SETACTIVE is normally required to apply in the steps.

    You could create a BAT file to use with all of the needed commands on your desktop instead of the shortcut to help make it easier.
