Windows 7: processor power management

processor power management

I'm adjusting some power settings in group policy for a special set of tablets (Panasonic H1) in our organization that are in high use. I have a question about one setting in there I'm unfamiliar with, which is processor power management. I've read some white papers from Microsoft, along with Google research, but I'm yet to find a good answer on how to properly adjust these settings to extend battery life. The first thing that looks weird to me is that in the group policy it is represented as a time in minutes, but when you edit the settings it is represented as a percentage. I was wondering if anyone had knowledge on these settings, or another website with some useful information about what to adjust here. The H1 tablets use remote apps for the most part, so I feel like I could reduce CPU power without affecting performance within the remote apps they use. Their biggest problem is battery life right now.

Just set minimum to the lowest it can go and let the computer handle it. I this case, 0. That way the computer will adjust the frequency of the CPU when it needs to. Otherwise it will stay at the minimum.
