Windows 7: game performance drops when unplugged

18 Oct 2010   #21

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

My sony laptop turns off the charger completely once it's charged. Doesn't turn back on again unless the battery's power goes down. I see no problems at all leaving it plugged in.

You probably wouldn't know any difference unless you've compared two laptops of the same type and similar age.. one that was primarily used as a desktop replacement, the other used the way it was intended.. even after 6 months a laptop used as a desktop replacement will have a shorter battery life than one used properly.. My advice on the subject has been given.. take it or leave it
