Sleep and Hibernate options are disabled with ShutDown Button

AOA n Hi

I have found that sleep and hibernate options are disabled with ShutDown Buttons. due to this, when lid is down, my laptop is still working.
Also, when i go to controlPAnel<<Power Options << then ....there is options of "Change settings that are currently unavailable" when i click it, options becomes unvisible. Also in the Power Plan Options...(on the same window/tab), When i click ComboBox for Battery and Plugged in......There are no Options of Sleep or Hibernate, only "Do nothing" and "ShutDown" options are there.

Please help. Thanks in anticipation.
