    Seems like not only does Modern Standby prevent you from seeing the other options, it also doesn't show the other default plans with "powercfg -list". It'll only list "balanced" but the other plans are hidden. Still can duplicate them but the duplicates are also hidden as well...

    Could you maybe add Reset and Restore Power Plans to Default Settings in Windows 10 to the first option in case they deleted the "hidden" default plans? it should restore them using powercfg -restoredefaultschemes

    Whilst the issue can exist, it has nothing to do with S0 Modern standby.
    - I have one proper computer that still lists High performance & Power saver as well.
    - I have one proper computer that only lists Balanced.
    - And I also I have one S0 Modern standby computer that only lists Balanced.

    Any idea what this issue could be caused by?
    I have a S0 Modern Standby computer that only lists Balanced and will never add any new plans if duplicating one of the other default plans.
    I also have a S3 computer that only lists Balanced, but will add new plans to "additional plans" if I duplicate one of the hidden default plans.

    (In this case, hidden plans would be all of the default plans except the Balanced plan)

    None at all but new computers probably come with whatever setup the maker has decided upon [i.e. whether or not they have used the procedures in this tutorial in their default configuration]
    - I just wanted to help you avoid disappearing down some blind alley by thinking S0 Modern standby was the cause.
    - On my one proper computer that only lists Balanced the power plans disappeared from the list after the Version 1709 update [when that Power mode slider thing was first introduced].

    I would have expected the procedures in this tutorial to resolve matters for you.
    - I would have thought that Option 1 would work in most cases and that Option 2 would work in all others.
    - But, if I have understood your post correctly, that is not the case and you have to use a different procedure.

    Same here, I remember having the other power plan options before a certain update (forgot which). Now the S3 computer will not list any of the other default plans unless duplicated. I suppose it's nothing much to worry about.

    Also most of the time these schemes are still in the computer themselves. Even with S0 Modern Standby you can use "powercfg -setactive <scheme name>" and still switch to the hidden default plans. There are also some new scheme names, probably for the battery slider.
