Do AD GPO's affect workstations if nobody is logged in?

I have a few computers on the domain that misbehave. (don't appear to follow GPO despite RSOP readout)

One issue in particular is a computer that seems to hang/sleep/comatose when nobody is logged into it over night. If a user is logged in, it's fine. Domain GPO says no sleep.

enter image description here So the symptoms beg the question, "When the computer is idle with no users, are the GPO's essentially deactivated because nobody is logged into the domain?"

Note: I have enabled the setting "Turn off local group policy object processing"
