Help please with Power Schemes

  McBain 23:57 15 Sep 2004

I have Win XP.

I often change the Pwer Settings (eg monitor standy 5 mins, hard disk standby in 5 mins etc).

I access as usual - Control Panel - Performance & Maintenance - Power options (Properties)

Initially there were 6 or 7 default options eg home PC, office PC, laptop, always on.

I then added a couple of variations eg monitor stanby 5 mins hard drive always on or monitor and hard drive standby 10 mins and named them accordingly and "saved as".

I wanted to tidy the list up, so deleted a couple, but being impatient I double clicked on some, so deleting more than I wanted to.

Now I only have 3 options. No probs you'd think, I'll add the ones I want back.

I can follow the pathway above to get the settings as usual, I can set up new schemes and name/save.

However, when I go back after rebooting (and after standby I think) the schemes I added have gone, I'm left with the 3 i didn't delete.

Can anyone help?

Is there a box i need to untick?

I've had a look round the options under "power schemes" but can't see anything.

but let's cut to the chase - why don't you simply roll Win XP back to a point prior to your tweaking using system restore?
