Windows 7: Trying to change Power Plan details

06 Dec 2014   #1

Windows 7 PRO 64-bit SP1
Trying to change Power Plan details

Always get a message "Your power plan information isn't available". I can change the plan (normal one is Balanced) and I can see it change (radio buttons that is), but I can never look at any plan itself. System is shutting off the monitor (video that is) and there is no way to change the timing since I can't see the plan. I can even add a custom plan (again can't change values) and it will be the default. I regedit and see all of the three plans and their (guid) and it matches exactly what MS says the default values should be in all three normal plans. I can even reset the plans to their original using powercfg and I know this works since this deletes my custom plan and only the three main plans (Balanced, High Performance, and Power Saver) are there with exactly what MS states. I just can't display and change any plan. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am stumped!!! PS: I can get the monitor back on by hitting any key. i am just puzzled why my system will not display the power plan information. It IS there.
