Windows 7: Power Options - Default

07 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64
Power Options - Default

I have a quick question, and i may be being simple here but i can't figure it

i have laptop that has some propriatory software for the power settings, specifically its the toshiba evo utility. there is a hard button for it above my keyboard. my usual policy is to run the eco when i'm on batteries and run a windows plan when plugged in.

i want to run the high performance when i plug in, but everytime i press the eco button to come out of eco mode it defaults to blummin balanced.

save for deleting the other plans, is there a way round this? can i set the default plan to always be high power when switching back and forth to my proprietry tosh eco mode plan?
