power schemes

susuandmesusuandme Senior MemberMember Posts: 136
can someone tell me how to reset my Power schemes back to their
default. I've changed them and there is no button to set them
back to their default.

I will need to study these for the test, and they are now changed especially
the "max Power scheme" and "portable/laptop" scheme. these
have been changed by me.

I cannot find a link on google to see all the default power schemes,
I want to verify all of them if possible. thanks riic

    I am running windows xp professional

    is there a way to set all the power schemes back to their "default" without using
    the registry. If not can you give me a link to the power schemes,
    I can just change them all back "manually" to their default settings.
    thankyou Rick

    Registry would be the only way I know how to do it.

    If you want the defaults, why not build a VM and manually set them back the way they are in the fresh VM?
    Good luck to all!

    I still can't find the default Power Scheme original settings.

    I need them for the test especially:

    Home Office Power Scheme Default Setting

    Portable Laptop Power Scheme Setting


    I have changed mine, and I had a few questions about how many
    minutes before the monitor and hadrive go off when plugged in
    on these settings, can someone help please. thankyou.

    have you tried the fixes in this Microsoft help article?

    I haven't tried it myself, but I googled "xp power schemes missing" and found the link in this thread, and a poster there reported that method #1 worked.

    By the way, how did you go about changing the power settings/schemes in the first place? If the two fixes in the MS article don't work, it may be easier to figure out how to fix it knowing how you changed them & what the last thing you did was before they went missing.
