If you want to reduce the heat, use windows power plan (as you did) but reduce the max CPU usage to 50%, or 5% to keep it on the lowest idle clock. Make various profiles so you can use the 5% usage for browsing/watching movies etc and one with 100% if you want the best performance.
That is way, way too high for an idle temperature. If your laptop is under warranty, send it in to Asus. If it is not, you may want to pick up some Arctic Silver thermal compound and reapply the thermal paste on your CPU, GPU, and the chipset.

Actually I just blew compressed gas to the fan in my laptop (first time after 4 years of use lol) and now it's better than when I bought it: 48-54C idle and 90C with stress test, and converting videos is only about 80C. I should have done it earlier because I built a PC so now I don't really need the laptop :/
