    Well, so you got it back? That's great! And sorry we hijacked your thread for a while hehehe,

    Once you create a new power profile, you can set all of those things in Advanced Power Settings.


    You can get to that from the Power Page, click on your Profile, there should be a "Show Advanced Power Options" at the bottom the the page for the power scheme. That's where you set all that stuff, and it would be there by default.

    After researching PowerMax for the last week, I am positive that your woes originated by using that POS program. Get rid of it and never use it again.

    What a mess - Don't wipe your drive needlessly, try to run an In-Place install, it should fix this problem. Return to 7 only if an In-Place Install doesn't fix it.

    Let me know if you don't know how to do an In-Place Install and I'll explain how to do it

    What you probably need is working ACPI drivers, they handle power saving options with BIOS.

Those that uses RDP would know that a proper disconnection or logoff of a session is necesaary. But with WDP there is no such power options. Just the good old click on X to close connection. Hopefully in the RTM version this will get rectified.
