Windows 7: Power management keeps forgetting settings

Power management keeps forgetting settings

Hi all!

Some time ago I have created a custom power plan, as I don't want to use the default windows settings.
Especially that I dont want my laptop to go to sleeping mode automatically.. (and many more settings)
And last time when I left my computer for some time, what I was seeing when I got back? Monitor off, and it was in sleeping mode....

So the problem is that sometimes windows reverts the settings to default by itself!

It seems that my custom named power profile is activated, but its settings are the windows defaults.

This happens once or twice in a month randomly.
I have no idea what can cause this.

Has got anyone similar issues, or something?
This behavior drives me crazy....

I have got a Toshiba Satellite A300 laptop and Windows 7 Pro 32bit

Wierd....Try creating the custom profile when logged into the main admin account of your machine.
