I am running Windows XP Home edition. I made changes to my power scheme
settings in the 'Power Options Properties' of 'Display Properties'. Now the power schemes box is empty no schemes or options are displayed. How may I reset/refresh/reinstall my power options?

I have the exact same problem and have found no solution. I have no idea why the power schemes are missing. I was trying to save a scheme and all the options were erased. ???

Configuring Your Computer’s BIOS
For Windows XP power management features to work properly, you should disable all power management features in your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). Run its setup program (usually accessed by pressing Del or F1 during the computer’s power-on self test; watch the screen for a message explaining how to enter setup), and browse the menus for all settings related to power management. With ACPI, power management should be under the exclusive control of the operating system. When the operating system and the BIOS contend for control, problems often result.

My son and I had checked the BIOS and I checked it again yesterday. It is set correctly. Thanks for the input. It has not caused me any real problems, it is just I would like to set my computer to go into standby on its own and I can not do that. I do not understand why this feature has been deleted.

This is probably one of the options you could reinstall from Control Panel>Add and Remove>Windows Components and have your CD at the ready.

Scroll down to Power Management - Change Power Management Configuration.

You might also try this: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

#204 right side..."restore power schemes/configurations"

To use the Regedits: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.
