Best way to fix greyed out Sleep button

If your Sleep button is grayed out and inaccessible, ignore all the other recommendations to go to BIOS, etc. All you have to do is go to Power Options/Edit Plan Settings and you can set when you want the Sleep to start - 1 minute from now, 5 mns from now, 6 hours away. It is true our video card in some laptops can disable the Sleep function but setting when you want the laptop to go to sleep in Edit Plan Settings is the easiest way around this. I usually just set the screen to go off in 5 mns and then the whole computer to go to sleep in an hour, but the choice is yours! Danny
