  1. "When I press the power button" is now missing


    Hi, recently in "choose what the power buttons do", the power button with its distinctive icon is missing and replaced with "when I press the sleep button" see image below . As a result, the power button just starts the computer but has no other use, and I have no sleep button on my computer. I still have sleep hibernate and lock available through the start button but would love to be able to hibernate by clicking the power button. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update.

    To assist you better, I would like to know when exactly you had received this error. Are you able to boot the computer?

    The following steps detail how to change what happens when the power button is pressed.

    By default the power button will tell the computer to shut down, if it is not set to shut down, please follow the below steps.

    • In the Windows search box enter ‘Power Options’ and click on it when it appears in the list.
    • On the left of the window, click on the ‘Choose what power buttons do’ link
    • Under ‘When I press the power button’ choose the option you want to change it to
      Shut Down.
    • Click ‘Save changes’ to save the changes.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow these steps to run Power troubleshooter:

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    Power button

    Hi,

    If your phone won't wake up when you press the power button, it's possible that your device software is corrupted. Especially, the button works when you press it for 1 to 2 seconds. For us to assist you better, please answer the following questions:

    • Have you checked if your phone has the latest OS build version? To check, just go to
      Settings, under System tap Phone update > Check for updates.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
