    Power Options Windows 8.1


    One day I go to shutdown/hibernate/sleep button and a pop up says "no power options available". I can still preform these options but I have to go through signing out first then picking. How do I change this? Oh, and no, I didn't add or upgrade, etc. anything lately.

    Hello Aynjill, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to quickly undo and fix this.
