Battery System Prefs Locked?

I can't find an easy way to unlock the Battery system pref for clients.  I want non-admins to setup their own preferences in Battery.

Am I missing something?

@llitz123  Try this out, note I have seen these settings reset themselves so might want to run once a week or at login via Outset.

Hi @KyleEricson,
I modified and tested your script. The following script works:

#!/bin/sh

# unlock the sysprefs before unlocking specific panes: 
security authorizationdb write system.preferences allow 

# unlock battery: 
security authorizationdb write system.preferences.battery allow


exit 0

thank you for sharing! :)
