Edit and Create Power Profile in Windows 7

Different computers have different power needs. Sometimes a computer may need its full resources most of the time so it needs full power. On the other hand, other computers may be able to get by with limited power. Furthermore, the type of computer can play a role. A laptop, for example, may need to conserve as much power as possible when running on a battery. But, it does not need to have its power profile limited when it is on AC power. The same can be said for a desktop.

Windows 7 gives users the ability to create different power profiles for different scenarios and different types of computers. This article will show you how you can easily edit those profiles for your needs.

The first thing you need to do is get into the power app. There are a couple of different ways to get to it. It is found in control panel so if you know how to get in there you just need to find the app. Otherwise you can hit WINDOWS KEY + R to get to the run dialog box. Once that opens you can type powercfg.cpl to go directly to the app.

Once inside the app you can change to one of the preconfigured profiles. These include Balanced, Power Saver and High Performance. It is probably best to pick Power Saver for a laptop on battery and High Performance for a desktop that you never want to go to sleep. Balanced is good for computers that are on AC power, but ones that need to conserve power when not being used. They will go to sleep and conserve energy. For a business with lots of computers this can save a bundle. However, if you have a computer that needs to stay on like one that needs to be accessed remotely then you need the HIGH PERFORMANCE option.

Edit Windows 7 Power Profile

These default plans will cover most situations that you will encounter. However, you can tweak three profiles or create a custom one for your situation.

If you want to tweak one of the default profiles you can click on “Change Plan Settings” to edit the different options. However, if you want to create a new one you need to click on “Create a Power Plan” on the left menu.

If you edit a power configuration you will see the following window:

From here you can select when you want the display to turn off and when you want the computer to go to sleep.

If you decide to create a new power plan, you will walk through a Wizard to create a new plan.

In first screen you will want to select a plan type and name it:

Then in the next plan you can select the sleep settings and the display shut down settings:

As you can see, creating a power plan is pretty simple. Hopefully, this article will show you how to properly complete this simple process.




Why Did No One Tell Drivers About This New Rule?

Do not pay your next car insurance bill until you read this…

Car accident on a highwayMay – (2015): Your Current car insurance company doesn’t want you to know this but as someone who loves to save money and someone who loves to share what they learn, I want you to know.

The simple truth is car insurance rates are based upon MANY different factors.  The zip code you live in, your age, your gender, your college education level, how many accidents you have been in over recent years.  What most won’t tell you is if you drive under 40 miles a day and have not told your insurance provider this than you are probably over paying for your car insurance.

When it comes to insurance I don’t fall for those customer loyalty accident forgiveness gimmicks.  That is really all they are.  Just ploys to make you think you are getting the best deal and if you switch to a different insurance company you will loose this special deal we have just for you.

Every 6 months I used to spend a few hours calling around and filling out form after form at all kinds of different place just to see who really had the best rates.

Now I only have 1 short form to fill out and I can let the insurance companies come to me and see who really has the best price. - Check out –>> BestQuotes Here -

When you enter in your zip code at BestQuotes and fill out the short quick form you will probably be shocked at the difference in price other insurance companies are offering.

Rates drop all the time but your current insurance provider is not going to tell you this.  They want you thinking you are getting the best deal but chances are you can get the same or similar plan for less than you are paying now.



But I love My Agent

I’m sure you may just love your agent but they also love you because you are paying more than you probably need to be paying.  The same exact coverage can be found at another provider and if the rate is better than you need to take charge of your finances and treat this as a business decision.  With your savings you can always by the person a parting gift ;)

But I already paid for 6 months in Advance!

This is another thing no insurance company comes out and tells you.  You can cancel your policy at any time and get a full refund on the rest of the policy that has not been used.  So if you paid for 6 months in advance and have used just 2 of those months you can cancel and get your 4 months premium back.  The balance is refunded.
