I would like to show my mechanical equipment power on a separate power plan. My problem is I do not know how to show the electrical equipment/devices on the mechanical power plan without them showing on main power plan and vice versa.

Uhm, so you shouldn't be having any problem changing the Discipline. Have you tried that method? (It's under the Properties of the View). Unless you made a Dependent View, you should be able to change it. If you can't, you should check if the view has a Template applyed, change it to <none> then you'll be able to change the Discipline.
I have the discipline set at Electrical. What I am trying to do is duplicate the power plan to create a mechanical power plan. The issue I am having is that the electrical devices on my power plan are showing up on the new plan I created. When I delete the devices on the new mechanical power plan, it deletes the devices on the base power plan.
There are multiple ways to accomplish this, and two of them are:
1. Place the Mechanical Power and the Main Power elements on separate Worksets and under V/G for each View, turn off the unwanted Workset.
2. Create two View Filters for the appropriate Category(ies) and set the Filter Rules for one to "Comments" "equals" "Mech" and the other to "Comments" "does not equal" "Mech". Add the appropriate View Filter to your Views and disable the Visibility checkbox. Now, to designate an element for the Mechanical Power Plan, select it and enter "M" in "Comments" under Properties.
I was able to create my filters for the mechanical power. Now how do I get keynotes to show only for that page. My keynotes are showing up on both plans, as well as text.
Did you duplicate the Plan as a Dependent? If so, the Dependent View will share the exact same V/G Settings and Annotations as the "Master View", and any changes made to either View will identically affect the other.
Did you duplicate the Plan with Detailing? If so, the annotations from the original View were copied over. They can safely be deleted without affecting the original View.
