Prevent users to shutdown restart putting to sleep or hibernating a computer

You can prevent users from shutting down a computer, putting to sleep or hibernate by implementing a local group policy (gpo).
This is compatible with all windows including Windows 10.

To do this:

1) In the Windows Search box, type MMC and click on the MMC icon (Microsoft Management Console)

2) Click File and click Add/Remove Snap-in

3) Select Group Policy Object Editor from available snap-ins and than click Add

4) Click Finish on the Welcome to the group policy wizard

5) Browse to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar

6) Select and click Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate command

7) Choose Enable and click OK

8) Refresh the computer group policy to make the changes active
