A person’s power refers to their social, economic, or political influence: ‘The royal family has very little power these days.’ ‘The major investors have the power to make or break a company.’

When talking about someone’s physical condition, use energy or strength (NOT power): ‘I don’t have the time or energy to go out in the evenings.’ ‘Her doctor has told her to take things easy until she gets her strength back.’
