Automatic renaming of Layer 3 to Power Plane

I have a four board layer in PADS Layout: a top component layer, two ground layers in the middle, and a bottom component layer. Since my keyboard shortcut, PO, doesn't hide a ground pour, I must redraw the pour outline to make the pour invisible, and then re-pour with the pour manager. At some point during this process, my 2nd ground plane (i.e. layer 3), automatically gets renamed to 'Power Plane.' I don't know why this is happening, and although it's just a minor nuisance, it has started to annoy me that I must rename it to Ground Plane 2 and remove the +5V net from the layer every time. Has anyone had this problem before?
