Windows 7: HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Power\User has 50+ PowerSchemes

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Power\User has 50+ PowerSchemes

Was following a Win7Forum thread to edit power settings in registry and I noticed 50+ PowerSchemes folders (ie; "381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e", etc...) inside ..\Power\User; 8-folders in User\Default\PowerSchemes -and- the rest in User\PowerSchemes.

How many should there be? I'm asking because I'm troubleshooting why Windows continues to change power & display settings upon & after Sleep-mode.

System has been scanned with many types of scanning software.
