    I am doing reserch on this because people are asking to set this to all the
    servers in our domain.

    There were a number of Internet articles that state the default for this
    setting is 15 minutes. I also have seen other internet articles suggesting
    that you set this to 15 minutes.

    Do Windows servers, by default, have this already configured or are the
    articles suggesting the policy should be set to 15 mins?

  2. Windows Servers do not go to suspended (sleep) mode by default.
    I have never configured any server to go to sleep mode, and I was never
    asked to do so.
    Had I been asked to do so, I would strongly object.

    The workstations, however, are different story.
