Power Settings

The power plan directly affects the performance of a computer or laptop, either reducing or increasing power consumption. Windows has the following power modes available:

  • Power Saver: designed for maximum energy saving for a longer battery life and, as a result, for the longest possible uptime.
  • Balanced: designed to make battery power meet performance halfway. This mode is usually the one used by default.
  • High Performance: significantly increases the computer's energy consumption, whilst allowing constant operation at full capacity.

You can either make changes to existing power plans or create your own.

Enabling High Performance
