Windows 10 sleep button missing? Here is how to get it back

So if you are one of the users who is searching for how to add sleep option in Windows 10 power options, I will walk you through very simple steps to enable sleep mode in your windows 10.

The case of sleep option in Windows 10 is quite different compared to that of Windows 7 that you will just have the sleep option listed in your shutdown menu once you have Intel graphics driver installed on your PC.

No special setting is required to get a sleep option in Windows 7.

Enabling sleep option in windows 10 is a very simple thing to do, and here, you will have all the steps involved listed.

It promises to be very concise and straight to the point post.

In Windows 10, you have the option to choose what power button does by selecting the available shutdown settings.

If the “sleep” option is deselected in this case, you may not have it listed in the power options when you want to shutdown your PC.

Of course, the sleep checkbox was not checked, that’s why you had your sleep button missing that you came searching for this page.

Since you want the sleep button to be listed in the shutdown menu, here is exactly how to get it fixed.
