    Windows 8.1 (HOME not Pro) 64bit


    what is this all about? why would options not be in the Advanced power settings? who would take those out and why?? Now i'm wondering what's missing from mine???

    I assume after a fresh install of windows 8.1 there is no need to make sure i have all my advanced power options right?

    I've never heard of someone needing to add those options in again.. what crap is this? what program would remove those and why can you even remove them??
    so odd.

    Hello bassfacer,

    Some power options are only available based on your system specs.

    Some times items may get removed for whatever reason (program or user error), and this allows them to add them back.

    Other times, users may wish to remove items to make it harder to change them by mistake or by other users.

    Hello Blink, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Which specific GPU power options are you referring to?

    Thanks!
    I mean the Intel(R) Graphics Settings, is that possible? I want this because I use this SP3 for light games sometimes and I don't like to enable the High performance mode by disabling connected stand by because I loose the sleep functionality and some other stuff. So if I could add those GPU settings + the processors settings (that I already added) above that would be great!

    Sorry, but no. That's a part of the Intel HD graphics driver software instead.

    I downloaded intel drivers instead and was able to access intel gpu settings and set it to high perfomance on display and battery life so i guess is the same.

    Thanks anyways!
