The Power Options on my control panel simply don't work, no matter what setting I choose. Turning of my screen, sleep and hibernate ignore every setting.
Help !?

Try right-clicking on the battery icon in your Desktop system tray (Notification Area) and select Power Options. See if selecting your power options there makes a difference.

Thanks for your message. Tried that but power options still doesn't work. Wonder if something went wrong when I installed the OS.
Thanks again.

When did you install? What did you USE to install it (copied disc, original upgrade, full, OEM)? Did you change any settings?

I installed all this a couple of months agop after I installed Windows 7 which promptly messed up my computer to the point where I had to wipe my harddrive and start fresh over again. I used the Vista startup discs that came with my Sony laptop that I bought last February. Before all this my Power Options and everything else worked fine, so I wonder if something with my re-install went haywire.
