    Hi all,

    I've searched and found many things on setting the default power configuration in windows XP. I had Home/Office desk, I deleted that because windows was not using that as the default or at least the way I set it and tried to put it back according to the way I wanted it (so I deleted it & then re-saved it). Shut off Monitor after 10 mins & Disk after 15 mins & system standby never. I can set it manually of course but now every time I reboot, the configuration changes to something I don't want, it never follows my new Home/Office Desk which I set from the control panel.

    Long story short, is there an easy way for my "NEW" Home/Office Desk which I saved to be the default(after deleting the previous Home/Office Desk) to be the new default after a boot? When I look in the registry I no longer see option 0 (which many sites say is the Home/Office desk), but I do see options beyond 5 (which I don't understand why they are there), how do I fix this short of re-installing windows? I'd like to set my default to my NEW Home/Office Desk, where ever that is.

    Thanks for any assistance,
