I’ve got to admit I’m new to the tuning game. I don’t really understand why it would be important to limit a charge. I needed a laptop that could match more closely the speed of my developer’s brain, I understand that comes with heightened power requirements. I bought the top tier laptop with 11th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i7-1185G7 @ 3.00GHz 3.00 GHz processor and 64G of installed RAM. I keep my screen brightness as low as comfortable for the environment, but when working from my mobile office (from the car dealership, or in my van helping with family errands and working while waiting for family to do shopping trips) ambient lighting is often bright, so the screen has to be brighter.
I regularly do development, 3d rendering, video processing, processor-heavy computations, etc.
My power settings are as follows for Windows 10 :
desktop background settings / slide show / on battery: Paused, Plugged in : Available
Sleep / sleep after / On battery: 60 minutes, plugged in: Never; Sleep / Hibernate after / On battery: 120 minutes, plugged in : never; Display / turn off display after / on battery: 4 minutes, plugged in: 10 minutes; battery/critical battery notification / at 2%, on in all cases, hibernate in all cases. Low battery level / at 6%, warn in all cases; reserve battery level : 4%.
Power button invokes sleep, closing the lid does nothing other than blank the screen.
Turn on fast startup : checked
I’m running Norton Security, which takes a chunk of background resources.
