Problem when changing power plans; changes won't take effect immediate
Straight to buisness: When I change power plans, let's say from "Power saver" to "Balanced" the changes does not take affect immediately. Any ideas?
I have just started using the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), and these are the following changes I have made, and nothing else:
So my initial thoughts are that when I created a shortcut to <Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options>, the changes won't take affect immediately. Before I used to just right-click the power icon in the notification area, but as mentioned, I have hidden the notification area, so I can no longer do this.
I have also tried the following guide to create power plan shortcuts:
Power Plan - Create Shortcut to Change Power Plan
That does not work either, so I'm stumped...only way to make the changes (for instance from "Power saver" to "Balanced") is to either reboot or log off-log on.

Ok, that makes sense, however: the reboot is very annoying, because of the reasons one would use the ability to change power plans from a state from "non-sleep" to "sleep" (for instance when watching a movie, and when the movie is finished, the computer goes to sleep). Also, this worked before, so why do you think a reboot is the best option, when the method I previously had was as it should be; working?
