  3. @ramo619ful Either you do not have administrative privileges or the registry entries for the power settings have been deleted. To determine what your user account privileges are, go to Start-Control Panel-User Accounts and find your username – directly under your username is account type. If you are an Admin, you could try follow the steps from Microsoft for this issue: google "kb913622" to resolve the issue. If the problem still exist you may want to scan for Spyware.
