    Battery Slider vs Power Options


    What bearing if any does the slider have on the power options (from control panel)
    I slid it to better battery but the power plan was still set to balanced?

    Are they completely independent?

    I needed to leave my laptop on over night and the fan kept starting up (not sure why, it was only downloading some files). I set it to better battery assuming this would limit the cpu so it wouldn't get so hot, it didn't. Changed my power plan to power saver and changed max state to 60% and it was fine....

    Slider seems to do nothing.

    :)

    No options to turn OFF adaptive brightness / no power slider


    Hello everyone!

    I'm stuck with a very weird problem I can't solve. I'm not a full-on reading binary style tech person but I'm using computers (and fix their problems) since forever and never ran against a wall like this:

    My Dell M3800 laptop turned on the adaptive brightness feature again that I disabled almost three years ago. Now it's pretty much useless in dim environments because the screen gets so dark. Also every option windows normally has to switch it off is gone. Not greyed out, it's just not there (Both in the legacy power options and in te new UI).

    Around the same time it happend that windows decided to get rid of the old power profiles and instead only show the "balanced" one that comes with the power options slider when you click on the battery icon in the tray. I had that briefly and then the slider disappeard along with the option of turning adaptive brightness OFF.

    This makes me MAD.
    • I deleted and restored the default power plans in several ways
    • I changed all (all I found, though) corresponding registry entries to disable adaptive brightness
    • I checked the registry for the the option to show the switching-option being ENABLED
    • I even stopped the windows service for the ambient light sensor

    No change. Any Wizards around? *Shock

    Missing Adjust Screen Brightness slider in Power Options


    My HP laptop performed a Windows Update today. As a result, I've lost my "Adjust Screen Brightness" slider in Power Options. I can still find it in Settings - Display.

    I have Win 10. I've found a YouTube video (specifically for Win 7) that suggests going to Device Manager - Monitors - Properties - Uninstall Device, but I've also read that doing so will merely result in the same driver being reinstalled.

    What should I do to get the "Adjust Screen Brightness" slider back in Power Options?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    3. Find the “Turn off Power Throttling” policy on the right panel and double-click on it to open it.

    3. In the policy properties window, select the radio option “Enable” and then click on the “OK” button to save the changes.
