QX410 laptop Power options

by waltpalmer3 / February 7, 2011 1:14 AM PST

I can get the power options to display (everything is set to "Sleep"), but it won't allow me to change anything - "Access is denied". How can I change the settings so that I can close the lid without entering "Sleep" mode; or make the Power button ask me what to do?

That sounds like a Windows question.

And what may happen if some account is not an administrator.

Right or wrong I'm finding folk that are new to Windows get a Windows machine and learn there is much to learn.

I ran into the same problem with my laptop. It is an incredible machine. Your problem most likely is from activating fast start. Go into the start menu and type in Fast Start in the search box. Click on fast start and disable it. This will allow you to change your power settings.

Thanks jam240sx - that was indeed the problem; you can either have Fast Start or have control of the power options.

I liked the machine very much, but I really would like a backlit keyboard (I work in lots of darkened spaces) - plus I couldn't get it to rain color calibration after sleep (also since resolved). If I could get a backlit keyboard for it I wouldn't have taken it back.

Maybe someday manufacturers (other than Apple) will make that a standard feature.

jam240sx - you deserve a medal, or statue or something. I've been trying to figure out how to enable those options for months now. Nobody in support could figure that out. I made an account here just to thank you.
