Power Option: Unbundle or Power Saver? What's unbundle?

I am seeing something I have never seen before under power options. The selection is either unbundle (which acts like the normal power usage) and power saver. What is unbundle and how do I get it back to normal? I can't find the answer anywhere. Here are a few screen shots I took.

Agreed with Karl - sounds like a custom power management scheme created by the system builder. It's hard to specify which to choose, because (given that unbundle is custom) we have no idea what the settings are in unbundle. However, Microsoft's recommendation (and the default power plan when installing Windows from the DVD) is "Balanced" (even for desktops). Unless you need the machine to stay on and not sleep while not in use for any specific reason, it might be worthwhile to consider the default and recommended setting.

Hi: I liked the Toshiba Power Saver that I had used for so long with my laptop, but after upgrading to W7-32b it does not work anymore... Most of the new utilities and drivers from Toshiba are specific for W7-64b. I was wondering if a driver from a relatively new computer (32b based) would...
