    turn off display option missing in system power settings


    I just got my first laptop 2 days ago from HP. Already in hindsight, I kind of wish I hadn't because of the lame support options, but the laptop itself is just fine with excellent display & performance. The keyboard is nice but the backlighting at my preferred sitting angle makes it look like the lower part of each character is "worn off", by that I mean the actual light doesn't show on the keys at the bottom, which makes them hard to distinguish. The Fn function keys are tiny too.

    Anyway, all I first wanted to do is turn off the display without closing the lid, as this system only has a 3-cell battery (wtf) & there's no way it's going to last "9hrs 45min" on a full charge as HP says. So, I go to the power & sleep options and select "additional power settings", then "choose what closing the lid does". The option to "Turn off display" is not listed. Oh boy. After several failed attempts at getting HP support to actually help, I ran into an article where many people wanted to also know why that option was missing. A poster there said he went into the registry at Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Power and modified the entry "CSEnabled" from 1 to 0, rebooted & viola! it was listed, although he did note that doing so worked when he pushes the power button once (and does so now on mine) BUT it also removed the "sleep" option. Ugh. I just checked and I too am now missing the sleep option. I mean it seems like such a simple thing like "turn off display" wouldn't involve all this research & registry modifying. Anyone know how I can get the "sleep" option back WHILE keeping the "turn off display" option? - Thanks

    :)
