Missing power state controls in advanced power plan settings

Hi guys, I'm new here and this is my first post. I have an Optiplex 745 running Windows 7 Professional. Normally in the advanced setting section of the power plan option I have the option to change the power state, however all of a sudden these options have just totally disappeared. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

What Power plan are you using ?

Balanced, Power Saver or High Performance ?

Also, run a System File Check

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Use option 2

Hello Kaamo,

Thanks for posting your question.

Is this a most recent issue you are experiencing? If it is, why not try to system restore to before it was happening?

1. When turning on your computer, continuously tap F8
2. Select Repair Your Computer.
3. Select System Restore.

Make sure to restore to before the issue was occurring.

Thank you,

A system restore hasn't fixed it unfortunately.
