Windows 7: Power/sleep button, closing panel options greyed out

Power/sleep button, closing panel options greyed out

Hi,

I am new to windows 7 and i would like to change these settings:

ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

I don't get why it's greyed out.

I have a samsung series 9. I have seen something about fast start, but I don't have that application. I removed all the bloatware from my pc.

Making a new plan won't fix this problem either.

I also can't get hibernate to work. It doesn't appear in the start menu.

Greets,
Remco

Hi

Since you have removed Fast start

lets try other way

Click start > run

type cmd.exe

Then type "powercfg -restoredefaultschemes"

and then reboot your system...

Let me know if this works

Well Remco

In that case the only way to remove it now is to use Fast Start and disable.....

You would either need to install the Samsung control center back in and disable the Fast Start setting and then remove the software completely via revo uninstaller or iobituninstaller........

Or you could try via regedit... but be careful when you take this route

It is accessible Thank you very much The hibernate function is also there.
