    how do i add back the sleep choice in the shutdown/restart in start menu in windows server 2019? is there like a registry change or something like that? i was able to reenable sleep in power option but the sleep option is missing in the restart/shutdown part of the menu..

    Install the actual Graphics driver for your GPU (even if onboard) instead of the Microsoft "Basic Display Driver"

    i did ... still no sleep show up in the start menu along with shutdown and restart.

    i can enable the sleep under power option in control panel and specify time to go to sleep, but there is no sleep selection to go along with restart and shutdown under start menu....

    Windows server 2019 is a bit strange, I don't see the sleep in start menu either. I also don't see the Startup tab in the Task Manager.

    i don't think sleep was avail in server 2016 either.... but i figure there would be a simple way to make it appears in start menu but no luck so far.... can only set the sleep timer but can't get sleep to show up in start menu.
