    A few weeks ago I posted a thread stating that there was nothing on the pull down menu on the power options. I am pasting your reply below.

    1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    powercfg /RestoreDefaultPolicies

    This got my pull down menu back, however it doesn't work. There is some kind of conflict. Also when I hit start, then turn off computer, and try to hit stand by, it is greyed out so I can't put the computer to sleep manually.
