Windows 7: Why Does Sleep Disable Desktop Background Slide Show?

Well, that apps came with the notebook, and it wasn't problematic before. Unfortunately I don't have any previous restore points. But the problem is kind of solved- as it don't display that option in the personalize menu, it still changes the wallpaper. The only inconvenience is that I have to use the regedit to change the interval, but then again it's not something I need everyday.

Computer is clean, recent scan from various programs didn't show anything. Maybe I try to do something with this Power4Gear app. Anyway, I appreciate all the help you provided. Thanks!

One more thing... I've just found out that what I marked as (2) on screenshots was just an info, not a link to settings... I've completely forgotten about it.

Well, i too wouldn't recommend using another power management program. Believe me, these so called utility apps that come pre-installed on OEMs are mostly bloatware. They rarely do any good than just harming your pc's stability.
You can try creating a system's image (OS partition image, so that you can retrieve that power management app if you decide so in future in case you don't have the install media). There're many apps for it, Macrium, Acronis true image or even the windows in-built tool. It's under backup and restore in control panel.
Uninstall that pre-install app. Also remove any other preinstalled program too if you don't need them.
Reboot. See how it goes now.

Well, just uninstalling didn't help, still no interval option is available in background menu. I didn't installed any other oem apps, 'cause I did a reinstall recently. Anyway, It works, in a little strange fashion, but nevertheless, it works. Maybe if i find more time I try to do something with it. I still have an original partition image from Asus, to recovery, but I leave it for now. Thank you all very much for help, but if you still have some advices, don't hesitate to share

Have you tried sfc /scannow

No, not yet. I'll run it later and let you know what happened.

Edit: So, sfc didn't helped much. It only restored the original uxtheme files for patched ones, which had nothing to do with the problem, as it worked on patched files. I don't know, the log file from sfc would tell you something more?

Anyway, it's not really a problem for me, I'm just curious why it doesn't work properly...

If you have all updates and drivers for your system (Especially graphics card's update from online and making sure it has all its proper settings) and its still broken, then if you really want it I'd reinstall and I wouldn't install things on my computer that weren't needed. Programs that have been uninstalled may still have their effect last upon the computer. Don't know if a repair would help but you could try that method instead.

You followed all my posts up to this point concerning the power management settings? You have selected multiple photos to switch from?

Check these out, they may or may not help you out: Missing option for desktop background slideshow and Missing slideshow option in personalize - choose a desktop background..

If not then perhaps there is something missing from your language pack? Well, I can only speculate and guess from this point. If it really drives you crazy, repair (and failing that) or reinstall.

Well, I've already got over it. Slideshow works, if I'd ever wanted to change the interval, I can always make a short trip to registry editor. Besides that, everything is working great, so I just leave it as it is.

Anyway, thank you all for replies, and have a great holiday time everyone!
