    Power Options: Laptop?

    In the hidden icons windoid of my laptop's system tray the battery power
    displays full (100%). I see the power option was "Balanced."

    I thought about that because since my laptop is usually plugged into an AC
    outlet, why be balanced. I turned on the "High Performance" power option.

    I'm thinking that "High Performance" is always on when on AC. So that power
    option might need to be "Balanced" when on battery power?

    You can adjust any of the plans to fit whatever way you would like it.
    Just set the Plugged In options to the same settings as High
    Perforamnce, and the On Battery options to Balanced or maybe a little
    better battery savings.

    Balanced can be configured to be "Always On" when on AC.
