Power Management Tab Missing


I just reinstalled windows 7 home on my tablet pc, the hp tm2t. Since i switched my hdd to an ssd. However, as i'm setting the tablet pc's multitouch function so that it would be responsive after idle (before my reinstall, i could uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"), i realized the power management tab in device manager isn't there anymore.

The item i'm looking for is under the human interface devices -> usb input device (it's not specified, but this device manages the multitouch for my tablet). I still see the power management tab for my wireless card, biometric devices (fingerprint reader) and some other usb root hubs. Does anyone else have the same problem? Or know a fix?

Missing Power Management Tabs

After upgrading to w7 from visa i can no longer wake laptop[h. P compaq presario v6000] from sleep using usb op mouse or op keyboard. No power management tabs are available for them in device manager. Under usb root hub power management unchecked 'allow computer to turn off this device' but 'allow this device to wake up computer' is greyed out. There is no option in bios to alter power settings[infact very little in way of any options] but it worked in vista so dont see this could be a problem. Also put w7 on my home build desktop with no similar problem. Any suggestions?

Nic Power Management Changes After Reboot

We are running windows 7 enterprise, fully patched on dell optiplex 745, 755, 760, and 980 computers and i can duplicate this on all of them. I go into device manager -> network card -> power management. Check the boxes that we want. Close device manager. Reopen device manager to check that the change took. It did. Reboot. All power management settings for the nic are now unchecked. Normally we run a script to do this, but it doesn't matter whether you make the change via script or by hand, the power management settings always revert back to all three boxes unchecked after a reboot.

As long as the computer isn't rebooted or shut down, the setting sticks for at least several days, the longest time we've tested. I found one thread that said this was a known issue, but the link to the answers.microsoft.com page came up 404. Any ideas? Here's the script, but like i said, it doesn't matter whether by script or by hand. On error resume next

Const wbem flag return immediately = &h10
Const wbem flag forward only = &h20

Arr computers = array(". ")
For each str computer in arr computers
    Set objwmi service = getobject("winmgmts:" & str computer & "ootwmi")

Uninstall Ie8 Tab Missing In Add/remove List

I need to uninstall & reinstall ie8 on my pc running win xp/sp3. But on the add/remove programs list under ie8, the uninstall tab is missing. The reason that i need to uninstall is that ie 8 hangs every so often. It has been suggested to me that my problem might be caused by installing ie8 before installing sp3 after my pc was in for repairs. If this is what is causing the problem, should i uninstall sp3 and see if this allows me to then uninstall ie8? Or is there another fix for this issue?

Tab For Recycle Bin

Can't see files in he recycle bin from drives other than c:all files deleted from the root drive c: can be seen in the recycle bin. Having multiple drives (local and networks), if you delete a file it goes to the recycle bin, but you can 't see. Steps taken. I can see all of my drives' recycle bin when i change view setting to show hidden files. What i can't do - not sure i should be able to do - is change the attribute settings on the recycle bin's to deselected hide file. Maybe that is what's missing. Any suggestions?

Solution To Alt Tab Not Working

This is not a question but a solution that took me about a month to find.consistently found alt tab to change programs would not work, and when i hovered over the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, the postage stamp image of the application would flash on once then disappear. Sometimes i could just not get an open application to maximize. Usually use my hp laptop at a workstation but when using it in another location noticed the problem had disappeared.

Figured there was something about the workstation. Tried back at the workstation and through a process of trial and error found it was a logitech skype usb speaker phone. It is a fairly old model - maybe 2007 - which i got as a freebee when i purchased a pc. It doesn't seem to like windows 7. Unplugged it and there is no further problem.

Classic Mode Using Alt+tab

I'm running win7 ultimate in the classic mode (the aero mode was just too much visual noise) and for years i've used the alt+tab to switch between applications. Starting with vista the contents of the pop-up alt+tab window sorts and does not retain the positions as it did in xp. Are there any settings that i can change to get the xp non-sorted window. With the darn sorting i find myself searching for the "the" window i want to bring to the foreground. I almost always have several applications running (10-20) and multiple windows within each application thus it is not uncommon that i will have 30-50 windows open when i'm researching a topic and attempting to create a document or presentation on the topic.

Ie Keyboard Shortcut For Open Link In New Tab

The help file for internet explorer states that the keyboard shortcut for "open links in a new tab in the background" is "ctrl+click", yet last i looked "click" is not a key, it is a mouse activity. How does a non-mouse user (blind, physical disability) perform "ctrl+click", or rather, how does a non-mouse user open links in a new tab in the background?

Force Aero Tab Preview, Transparency

I am running windows 7 ultimate with dual-monitors and a high-end video card that is aero-capable. However, i run an additional monitor for background work that is connected to my computer viaa usb to vga converter. Upon connecting the converter aero tab preview, transparency and peek go away. I would like to have those aero features enabled, at least on the main monitors, with the usb to vga converter attached.

Running the aero troubleshooter indicates that wddm session manager was disabled, but corrected that problem (actually the wddm session manager is consistently reported as "started" so i'm not sure what the troubleshooter is telling me). I have read in other forums about a registry modification method (adding dwords to hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftwindowsdwm) but this does not work.contacting the manufacturer of the converter, siig, did not result in any solutions.

So i am hoping that you can suggest amethod to force aero tab preview, transparency and peek even if the usb to vga converter does not meet aero hardware requirements.

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

Aero Alt+tab Application Keeps Popping Up

I have a windows 7 professional system and for some reason the little window that comes up when you press alt+tab keeps popping up on its own. Whether i'm at my system working or i'm away from my system it keeps popping up on its own. I've tried reinstalling the drivers for my keyboard and mouse. I've made sure my system is up to date with all the latest updates but this problem keeps happening. I haven't been able to find more information about this anywhere, though i may be using the wrong search terms because i dont know what that alt+tab window is called. Keyboard/mouse i'm currently using is microsoft wireless laser desktop 6000 (v2 i think).

How do i change 'about:tab' back to 'toolbar:new_tab.html, for my new tabs. Can't get rid of 'about:tab' address for my new tabs. Don't like or want the page.

Bsod Memory Management

I am using windows 7 home premium. After the installation i began to have bsods with the problem being "memory_management". I ran the windows 7 memory diagnostic. There were no problems indicated. I then ran the "sfc /scannow" and there were corrupt files that could not be repaired.

So i decided to do i did a clean install. I installed the latest bios from the manufacturer and reinstalled windows 7. After a day or two the bsod came up again with "memory_management". I ran both the memory diagnostic and "sfc /scannow" and both did not show problems of any kind.

Disk And Memory Management

The computer is emachines t3612. Recently upgraded to windows 7 (32). Deleted the recovery drive (d:) as it was representative of the original windows vista home basic that was upgraded to vista home premium. Tried to be a "whiz" and use the memory on c: - i failed and a friend suggested moving the memory to the user file. I did. When the cd/dvd drive did not respond as d: i changed it back to e: but it still will not work (except for a music cd. Is there anyone out there that can help me straighten this mess out? 

The cd/dvdw driver is tsstcorpcd/dvdw ts-h652d ata device. I contacted emachines who will not assist because the machine is out of warranty (unless i pay them a small fortune) and tsst doesn't appear to have this model driver any longer, but someone asserted it is the same as samsung sh-5182d that i am to fearful to try. I have considered returning to the upgrade disc to do a clean installation, but it took so long to get the programs and the computer to a really good working state that i do not want to start from scratch again.

I need specific instructions on how (or if) i can move all the available memory to c: and make d: the cd/dvdw drive.

Rights Management Add-on Issue

I'm working in an ad rms project with a customer and i'm having issues displaying rms protected e-mails with owa (exchange 2007). We're testing with 3 windows 7 (ie8) machines, and when we try to open a protected e-mail we're asked to install the ie add-on, (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Familyid=b48f920b-5af0-46b4-994f-2f62582cc86f&displaylang=en) which we have installed. But after install the add-on and try to disply the protected message, ie hangs with a blank page. We try this with the 3 machines with the same result.

Any thought on what may be the problem? (Everything works fine with outlook and other office apps) something i noticed is that in the ie add-on download page, windows vista and 7 are not listed as supported o. S. , So is there another ie add-on for win vista and 7.

Backup - Poor Space Management

I have a 500 gb hard drive that i don't do anything with except let windows use it for a back. I choose the standard backup settings and i woke up this morning only to find out the hard drive has 5 mb left. It says that the break down of the disk is:

Data file backup - 358. 15
System image - 101. 04 gb
Other files - 6 gb
Free space 5 mb
Total 465. 64

I currently let windows manage the space used for backup (guess i shouldn't). The point i want to make is that my c: is only 85 gb. The backup has worked for over 5 months and i haven't made any changes (downloading huge files). The only option this software gives me is to delete the whole backup from 9/14/09 to today. Why can't it just remove a month or two it's self? Why do i have to delete the entire history? Shouldn't the software be smart enough to do that?

Local User & Group Management

Recently i just got my win7 upgrade to the home premium edition for my desktop, which is going well and runs smoothly in conjunction w/ my ubuntu laptop. During my setup process on any computer; i disable/rename the default guest/admin accounts just as matter of old habit from xp it days. Now imagine my surprise when i went to my computer>manage and didn't see the user accounts.

My question is, is this something not apart of the home premium edition of win7? And if it is apart of this edition, where did it get moved to?

Sort Order In Display Management

How i can switch the sort-order in the display-management? My main display (tft) is connected with vga, the second display is my lcd-tv which is connected with hdmi. But win7 declares the lcd-tv as main-display and listed it as "1", the tft is "2", when i say, that the tft has to be the main display, it keeps "2". In the presentation mode (win+p) it works fine, but when i return back to normal use, the tv is the main-display, and the tft is black. How i can change the sort-order? I want the tft as "1" and the tv as "2"!
