XP power schemes all gone, can't control power options
Posted on 2009-07-01
I have not installed any software or hardware. Only automatic Windows updates and Office updates have been installed. All of the Control Panel|Power Options|Power Schemes are gone or grayed out. System insists on putting the monitor into "power save", though I don't want it to. As a clue, during the period when things changed, many desktop icons changed their design, as if a new set of icons came with one of the automatic updates.
