    No power options customization


    Hello windows 8 forums,

    I have this problem of not being able to customize power options. I get this error :

    Click image for larger version

    Furthermore creating a custom also fails


    Click image for larger version

    I have no idea what setting my computer as a result is using. I also blue screen when my lid of my laptop shuts, im going to guess because of the lack of a profile to tell it what to do. I believe it was exception not handled monitior.sys (but im not sure) Any thoughts on why this is happening, cause and what could fix it?

    Thanks for your time in advance.

    You might want to try a refresh using Brink's excellent tutorial; however, please read carefully before attempting because you're going to have to do some reinstalls afterwards.

    Refresh Windows 8

    Cheers and good luck.

Solved Power options in Performance & Maintenance
A while back, Brink showed a way to setup so that you could right-click on the desktop for some power options one of which was “shutdown”. I had it working when I had the evaluation edition and liked it. I now have installed the update Pro. But, I forgot how to do it. Can anyone refresh my mind?...
