    Ok so I thought I was doing my computer some good by cleaning the registry. I found out today that there are parts of my registry missing because when I go to the power options menu, some of the tabs aren't there and there are no standby and hibernation settings. My computer will not go into standby.

    Under the advanced tab in power options when the option "When I close the lid of my computer" the only option in the drop down menu is "Do nothing".

    My Computer is an IBM Thinkpad and my OS is Windows XP

    Registry cleaners are frowned upon in the general PC community. Your best bet would be to reverse what action you took, with whatever program you used to clean it, or to use system restore to restore it to a point before the cleaning proccess.
