Default Lost my power settings

Some how i've ended up with this (see pic). Does ne1 know how to make new schemes to add? Non of the buttons work and so i can select ne options. I'm guessing some registry editing is needed.

Open REGEDIT and go to --

My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg

- Set the CurrentPowerPolicy variable to 0 (zero).

- Next, go to the Power Policies subfolder, and rename at least the first one on the list to "0". (I renamed mine as 0, 1, 2, and 3.)

- As long as there is a Power Policy 0, everything seems to work -- even if the next policy number say, 12.

Always Make a backup! of your Registry before you make changes!
