    How to Add or Remove Sleep from Power menu in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Sleep uses very little power, your PC starts up faster, and you’re instantly back to where you left off. You don’t have to worry that you'll lose your work because of your battery draining because Windows automatically saves all your work and turns off the PC if the battery is too low. Use sleep when you’re going to be away from your PC for just a little while – like when you’re taking a coffee break.

    For a lot of PCs (especially laptops and tablets), your PC goes to sleep when you close your lid or press the power button.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove sleep from showing in the Power menu for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in to Windows as an administrator to be able to add or remove sleep in the Power menu.

    Hi,

    First, this forum is awsome!

    Second, here is my problem. I did what they say in this video to unable High Performance power option ( Unlock All Power Options On Surface Pro 3 High performance mode, cpu ang gpu options ulocked - YouTube ). It was pretty simple. I basically just change a number in Regedit (1 to 0). But then I lost the Sleep option. It is no longer available in the Shutdown settings (see picture). Do you have a solution to bring it back?

    I have a Surface Pro 3 i5 with windows 10 update.

    Thx for your time,

    Phil

    Hello Phil, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The video was for disabling Connected Standby. You should just have to change CsEnabled back to 1, and restart the computer to undo it.
