Why Learning How To Properly Balance Windows 10 Power Settings (2020) Is Important:
What Systems Do Power Settings Affect?
Power settings in Microsoft Windows 10 only affect machines that have a variable power source. These types of devices are typically tablets or laptops. Those users who mostly used desktops don’t receive many benefits from power setting tweets. The biggest issue between power setting optimization is finding a balance between battery and power consumption. The higher your performance settings, the more battery you’re going to consume. Many laptops come pre-configured for power profile adjustment.
However, there is not a concrete way of identifying whether or not these power settings are optimized. As with anything else, it’s entirely possible the profile established by your laptop’s manufacturer is not an excellent fit for your user. This guide is a fast way to ensure you are getting Optimal Performance or optimal battery savings. There is also a method to dig a little deeper and tweak your power settings to what’s the best fit for your user. We want to make sure we have customized our Windows operating system for the user. Each user can utilize a computer in a variety of different ways.
What Power Settings Are Best For Me?
For this reason, it’s always a great idea to discuss what options are available to them. For example, they may want their computer to completely shut down when they close the lid instead of going into standby. Shutting down the computer when you close the lid is a personal preference for me. I prefer this because there can be long periods between my laptop usage. The last thing I want is to finally open up the lid and find the battery depleted from standby mode. Modifying power lid settings is just one of many different power options available in the Windows 10 environment.
The ultimate goal is to find the perfect balance between power consumption and performance. If you’re using a gaming rig, then you’ll probably want to always run at Optimal Performance. Choosing to let the computer slow down because a wall outlet it’s not plugged in May completely crippled your gaming experience. Unfortunately, the other end of that token is your battery life probably be reduced to 30 minutes when it could have run for hours.
