Windows 7: Laptop preformace on battery.

Laptop preformace on battery.

I have a Toshiba L645-S4102 laptop. It is a dual core with 4 gig of ram running Windows 7.

When I am running on AC power it is very "responsive" when I am on the internet going from web page to web page. When I am on battery it is sluggish and not near as responsive.

Is the the way it is supposed to work or is the some setting in "power management" that I need to change?

Thanks,

Mike

Do you want more performance versus less battery life? Meaning you will use the battery faster. Is that acceptable?

Yes. I would say that when on battery my lag time is up around 50%, I personally find that unacceptable. I typically run on AC and only cycle the battery once a week or two just to maintain it. So battery life is not that important however I would like to get at least 1 hour or better.

You can adjust your battery settings using power management, but if you try and boost battery performance, its charge will degrade a lot quicker.

Open Power Management > Change plan settings, on your current selected plan > Change advanced power settings > Scroll down to Processor power management > Maximum processor state, set the values to 100% (I recommend you go to Minimum processor state as well and change the values to 1% for both Plugged in and Battery.)

Thanks. I went there and it was set at 100% for battery and AC (maximum) and 5% for both on minimum.
