No power options in Control panal

Hello all

Is this normal..... I am having a slight problem with the laptop freezing every night when i go to sleep...

So i figure a need to adjust some of the power options.

Howerever - "power options" in the control panel is empty... a small red circle with an x in it is in there and some slider adjuster thingy on the bottom

What am i missing ?

Please advise
