Windows 7 Power Plan Constantly Returns To Defaults

For some reason, my laptop keeps returning to the default settings for the Power Plan, which means, even though my laptop is plugged in (not running on battery), every time I turn it on, the screen is at less than half brightness, and I have to go in and update the Power Plan settings every time I turn the computer on.  Very annoying.

I have tried altering the existing Power Plans, and I have tried creating new Power Plans, both to no avail.  My laptop is a Dell Precision M4400, and does have a light sensor, but I've got it turned off, so it shouldn't be affecting my settings.

I have not been able to find a solution to this problem.  Anybody with similar problems or a solution, please post in the comments!
