Windows 7: Change power settings based on a schedule?

25 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Change power settings based on a schedule?

Say you want the computer automatically to go into Power Saver mode at night, High Performance during 9-5pm hours, and then Balanced at other times. Is there a way to do this?

It might be doable using task scheduler and the powercfg command, but the main issue with that is if you computer is sleeping, it probably won't execute the command to take it out of sleep.

Send me your ideas and comments.

if your computer is sleeping, then I dont think it matters which power mode it is in. Otherwise, this is a good Idea and I am interested as well if anyone finds a setup.
