    Options Missing from Power Options Advanced Settings


    I went into my power options to change some of the advanced settings and most of them are missing? I am on windows 8.1 with a week old Surface Pro 3. I want to say I read somewhere that hyper-v can cause options to be missing, but I honestly don't even know what that is and I don't have it installed.

    Awesome. Thank you Brink. Do you know how to turn on processor options?

    Yep, but I'll need to know which specific ones you wanted.

    This is what I am trying to accomplish with the power settings. It's a link for power settings for a Surface Pro 1 & 2, but I would think the 3 would be similar.

    There's quite a few available. If you could post a list of specific options you want restored, that would help make it easier for me.

    Awesome Brink. Thank you so much. That processor one was the main one I still needed. If I think of more, I will let you know.
