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.
