Windows 7: Advanced power settings won't react on mouse click

Windows 7 Professional x64
Advanced power settings won't react on mouse click

Hello there!

I have annoying problem - just have left domain, restored all computer policies to default, but cannot access advanced power settings in control panel.

The thing is, that in domain this setting was disabled, so users can't change any power related settings.

So far I have tried almost everything from google, that involves policy reset to default, power plans reset and so on, but no success.

Screenshot with setting, that won't open.

Any help? Thanks!

Solved this problem by myself. Powercfg.cpl didn't have right permissions. I set it to Full Control and now it works like a charm. :)
