The power settings have been changed to maximum CPU state of 99% to reduce the temperature of the CPU (from what I've heard).
Anyone know any other good tips?
Use a can of compressed air. works. I do it myself.
Is the battery and is the inverter (power adapter) original?
Simply choose the Power Saver power plan.
WIN + X key combo| Battery Status section, choose Power Saver from the dropdown box.
WIN = key with Microsoft logo on top.
The biggest consumer of power by a very big margin is the display.
Once again WIN + X | choose Display Brighness section | click on the icon and slide sliders to the left.
