Q. How can I change the power scheme in a batch script?

A.  Use the powercfg command.

To list existing power schemes:

powercfg /list
To change to one of them:
powercfg -s <guid>
For example:
powercfg -s 381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e
To make sure the computer doesn't go to sleep while something important is running switch to the High Performance scheme.
