I rebuilt a HP Pavilion with Windows Vista on it.  Installed 7 and then 10.  All is running fine except for one thing.  The sleep mode option is not available.  It lists shut down and restart.


I am sure there is a setting for sleep mode but I can't find it.


Thanks in advance for your assistance.


Happy Holidays

Control Panel, Power Options, Choose what the power button does link, Change settings that are currently unavailable link.  Check/uncheck the checkboxes at the bottom of the window for the options you want in regard to sleep, hibernate, etc.


By the way, I always turn off Fast Startup.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
