Hello,
I recently just installed a Galaxy GeForce GT 610. Everything installed easily and had no problems. Until i tried to put my PC to sleep and noticed the sleep option is completely missing. It isnt in power settings, power button, or even in advanced power settings. just trying to figure out how to get my sleep mode back! oh and i have an HP -2326s, windows 8 if thats necessary

Look in 'Display' under Control Panel. You will find options there.

Make sure the sleep states are not turned off in the BIOS power management.

In the BIOS enable C1E (sleep state) - ditto with C3, C6, C7 (sleep states). Save BIOS (F10) and restart,

Usually the sleep states are disabled for overclocking.

I have an identical issue just from a different graphics card. The sleep mode has been completely removed from all pulldown menus and anything else. You mention that it's usually disabled due to overclocking, well the card I bought is 'manufacturer oveclocked'. Will I be able to reinstate a sleep mode option via BIOS or anything else? If I due reinstate a sleep mode option is it going to rupture the new 'manufacturer overclocked' graphics card or nullify it partially or completely?!

The sleep states are disabled in the BIOS for overclocking the CPU. This disabling is done by the user if the sleep option is available on the motherboard.

The Graphics card overclocking (sometimes done by the manufacturer) is different. Graphics card manufacturers have their own program for overclocking the Graphics card. EVGA has "Precision" (free program).

I generally OC the CPU and leave the Graphics card alone.

I see, so in my case I installed this AMD Radeon 7770 (Black) and the option to set "what happens when the power button is pressed" doesn't even offer sleep mode anymore, is there a way to bring it back without lowering or nullifying the point of installing the better graphics card?

Handy-dandy link, thnx! I was able to look at some things and flipped on hibernation mode. I see "hibernate" is now an option in my pulldown menus. I may stick with that, it's better than powering completely off. According to the powercfg, I found out all 4 or 5 standby states read "..an internal system component has disabled this standby state. graphics" so it's safe to assume the new card won't jive with an active sleep setting around.

Windows and not the Graphics card controls the sleep states. You have a good Graphics card, leave it alone.

The thread posted by Sr-71 Blackbird will provide more detailed info.
