(Only the stuff between the < and >)
Now you get a list of all setting in Windows.

What few people might know:
You can drag and drop any of the settings icons to your desktop or Quick launch area and Windows will create a shortcut for you to exactly that setting :-)

But I really miss the setting which used to be available even for Desktops, that you could simply ask Windows to display the energy icon in the status bar and you could select the power plan with only 1 click.... :-(
I hate it when they dumb down things (what they have done with so many things in Win 7)

WIN + X key combo | in the Battery Status section, from drop down box , choose the desired plan.

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Hello Marwerno,

You might like this then. You can pin it to the taskbar, or add it to Quick Launch to be able to do so.

Hello. Just a tip about this power plan. I have noticed a lot of laptops have overheating problems. So by selecting this power plan the temperature will get higher. Therefore I would suggest limiting the processor max to 95% when doing that.

I hope this question is not out of line in this forum.

This batch file will get the active power plan; how do I incorporate it into a webpage/script?

Code:
@echo off 
powercfg -query > list.txt 
set /p line=< list.txt   
for /F "tokens=2 delims=()" %%a in ("%line%") do set string=%%a 
echo %string% 
del list.txt 
pause
