Windows 7: Power Management Setup: Notebook on Battery Just Shutting Off

Power Management Setup: Notebook on Battery Just Shutting Off

This might be fixable through the OS or it might be peculiar to my notebook (ASUS G74SX).

I am seeing my notebook while on the battery just shutting off as its power level reaches a certain threshold. There is no forced entry into a sleep or hibernate mode as a user would want. It's an abnormal shutdown.

Moreover, the shutoff is occurring at something like 20% power level.

Do I need another application to watch battery power or to do a better job of managing a forced entry to sleep or hibernate?

It seems like it was properly going to sleep mode before but this has changed.

One other complication: ASUS bundles its own applications and utilities. One of these is the power management control panel utility called Power4Gear Entertainment.

I have never really understood why ASUS provides this if the MS Win 7 environment has profiles too. Should I uninstall this ASUS extra?

Hello mavi you wrote this

Now you could try a scannow for corrupted files SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I am also wondering if you have done any malware scans because if it was working and now has left you with this. Try the sfc first then these

This is why no tech enthusiast would run the corrupt factory preinstall with the huge load of bloatware and duplicate utilties that smother Windows 7's native performance. Instead you should Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .

At the minimum until then I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware

Asus makes good hardware but their preinstalled software is poorly written crapware.
