Windows 7: How can I change power plan and run scripts based on power state?

How can I change power plan and run scripts based on power state?

I overclock my CPU by changing its FSB and I have scheduled (Task Scheduler) this script to run every time I logon to Windows. But I would like to schedule it to downclock when I pull the power cord and then overclock as I plug it back in. Is this possible? It would also be nice if Windows changed the power plan when switching between AC/battery.

Hello Apex,

I'm not sure it's possible to have Windows change power plans automatically like that.

However, if you like, you could use either tutorial below to help make it easier to manually switch between power plans whenever you like.
Power Plan - Choose from Desktop Context Menu in Windows

Power Plan - Create Shortcut to Change Power Plan
Hope this helps some,
