Cannot Enable Instant Resume


I was wondering which setting(s) might be preventing me from being able to enable the instant resume feature in Power Manager.  I read elsewhere about trying to restore the default power settings to open the field for input yet this does not work for me.  I am able to adjust the advanced settings for the 'Lid Closed' event but cannot change the checkbox to turn this on. I am running version 3.45.   Could there be any conflict with the W7 Power options?  How does the machine know to ignore the Windows settings to use those set in Power Manager?  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Anyway, try uninstalling the Power Manager from your unit; go to our support site via ; download and install Power Manager and try again.
