Win 7 Pro 64 bit. 8 gb memory and a Seagate barracuda 2TB Hdd. The problem is The radio button to [choose when the computer sleeps] is missing that normally resides just below The radio button titled {choose when to turn off the display} I would really like to get this restored. Please see the attached file for a visual reference. win 7 pro 64 bit was just installed 2 days ago on a new Hard drive. Your help is needed .

What about if you click "change plan settings" next to the high performance plan?

Hello Delvin, I have tried that several times. Did not correct the problem. I can get to the change when computer sleeps by using your suggestion. but it does not restore the afore mentioned radio buttons on either screens.

The option is not there probably because windows does not have a driver to tell the pc to sleep.
