Need new Power Scheme

I have a windows 7 home premium laptop and I would like to ask one question. How do you create your own power plan? This is what I have in mind:

1.Everyime when I plug in my laptop charger, I want it switch to High Performance with the highest brightness setting on

2. When I unplug the laptop charger, I want it to switch to power saver mode with the lowest brightness setting on.

Does anyone know I can configure this?

in the power settings there are different options for plugged in and on battery just modify the one you use or create a new one or copy the one you use and change the on battery settings then name it differently and use that one

EDIT: btw i think you should have made a new thread for this question

Sorry I don't know how too. Right now, I have to manually switch to different power settings. I am just asking if theres a way of making it switch automatically?
