View Full Version : Power Options not saving in Win7

12-17-2013, 06:04 PM
Ever since I installed my Z87A, I can't get Windows 7 home premium 64 to save my power options. I want the monitor to sleep and the computer to never sleep. I set them in Power Options and after a reboot, they default to monitor sleep at 1/2 hr and the PC to sleep at 1 hr. I've been to wnidows forums and they keep telling me to save my settings and use balanced and not custom etc. I've tried all the different options in Power Options. Could it be something in the ASUS tweak options? I have it set on High Performance, I've tried all the others too and it makes no difference. I've OC my i7 4770K to 43.

Do you have AI Suite installed?

Hi Chino, yes I do. I'm not sure what to do with it tho......

Remove the AIsuiteIII for now, you can re-install it later if you like.

Now use the tool in my sig to get the bits and bobs removed.

Set power plan in OS to performance and make your changes and see now it goes.

Done deal.

Great! that was it. Thanks Hivizman, I thought ASUS was overriding my OS somewhere.
