    Hello,

    For some unknown reason, the settings under "advanced" in the Power Options category randomly changes. From "do nothing" under lid closing, to "standby". Other fields like power button pressing and sleep button pressing are affected too. This happened fairly reacently, and I have no idea what program is causing this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Not sure if it helps. It changed back again.

    Thanks for helping though.
