This article will help you troubleshoot in case if you have accidently deleted or by some way you lost the little power icon on the Windows 7 Taskbar near the system clock.

Possible, the icon wont be deleted. In case if it is hidden you can find it this way.

If you remember any thing, try to undo those changes, if you are not sure, try system restore to the earlier version. please check the link Using System Recovery Options In Windows 7 to know how to use System restore in Windows 7
