What is the Attributes in Registry?


New Member
In the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings", the "Attributes" has values "0","1","2". I know the "1" means hide the item in Advance power settings, "0" means that show the item, what means the value "2"? does it mean use on laptop? for some keys, the Attributes values are different in Desktop PC and laptop, the Attributes is 2 on PC and is 1 on laptop. Can anyone tell what means the "Attributes=2"
