My Toshiba Tecra came with 7 preset power policies, as normally accessed from Control Panel. I've added 2 of my own. When editing one of these to change "close the lid" from hibernate to standby, I got a dialog box with a message that said, approximately "change levels incompatible". After that, only two power policies show, "home office/desk" and "portable/laptop".

I searched the registry for "Toshiba power" to find references to the custom profiles Toshiba loads. I found 12 profiles numbered 0 to 11 under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies

One of these, number 10, appears to be empty or blank. Number 11 is one I defined and deleted after the problem.

I'd like to recover the use of these profiles. I have a registry backup from about a week ago if that helps.

Anyone know what I need to do, or where/how to find out?

Looking at it again, I also discovered that policy number 6 is missing altogether. 0 and 1 are the only ones showing. Is there somewhere that it finds the number of policies available, or does it just count them?
