You do realize how easy it is to change the power plan settings right. I use the "balanced" plan, but I change almost every setting. Go to power options in control panel. Click Change plan settings, and the option you want is right there. There are even more options available by clicking Change Advanced Plan Options I'll admit it might look different on a desktop, but you should still be able to change the setting in less than two minutes. I sometimes change a setting for a short time period, then change it back, because it takes about 10 seconds for me to do.
