Windows 7: Sleep mode option not available

07 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Sleep mode option not available.


Mine wasn't available. Today, I installed this to make my computer more stylish (Like Windows 8):

I got it from here.

It didn't do anything to my machine. I'm not sure if it would work on yours

Then I Disabled Hibernation and Sleep Mode was Enabled. I have no idea what could have caused this.
Any ideas?

I am running A Fujitsu Siemens Computers Amilo M3438G.

In looking at the link you provided, it says:

The themes work on X86 or X64, SP0, SP1, SP2.
The System files only work on Windows Vista SP1 x86.
Notice: This is only can be full use on Windows Vista SP1 x86.
Even though people have said that Windows 7 is just about like Vista, and while it's true there are many similarities, I have to ask why a developer would specifically exclude Windows 7 unless the software really wasn't designed to work on 7.

If it was me, I'd take the developer's advice:

PS: Please create a Restore point using "System Restore" before applying anything mentioned in this tutorial so that you can restore your system back to a working state if anything goes wrong.
