    Power Plan Switching While App is Running


    I use my computer as a music player, I've ripped my CDs to my computer and I use foobar2000 to play them.

    When I first set this all up, I'd noticed that my music would stop when my hard drive is set to turn off due to inactivity. So, I'd disabled the setting. The downfall of this is, I have no screen saver.

    Is there a way to have an app constantly running in the background to see if foobar2000 is currently running? I'd like to switch power profiles then.

    :)

    Power plan?

    Upon checking, it seems that there's nothing wrong with your system. It is usual that you have to double-click your mouse before your monitor wakes up.

    For the meantime, we suggest changing the power plan by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + S.
    • Type in Power Settings.
    • On the pop-up window, choose Additional power settings.
    • Select High performance.

    After changing the power plan, we suggest that you monitor the changes made and check if that will work for you.

    Get back to us if you need further help.

    Hi Jonah,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with power plans.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    This issue could have occurred due to incorrect Power settings. Try the steps listed here:

    Method 1:

    Let’s run the power troubleshooter and check if that helps.

    a. Press Windows key on the keyboard.

    b. In the search box, type Troubleshooting and press
    Enter.

    c. Click on ‘System and Security’ and click on ‘Power’ click on next to run the troubleshooter.

    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to
    restore the power plans to default and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Reset and restore the power plans to default:


    • Right-click on
      Start button
      and click on Command Prompt (Admin).

    • In the command prompt, type powercfg –restoredefaultschemes
      and hit Enter.

    • Exit command prompt.
    Note: This would reset the power plan settings to default. Any customized power plans are would be removed.



    Step 2:

    Once the power plan is reset to default, you may create a
    new power plan
    and customize the same according to your needs.

    WSReset.exe.

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    sfc /scannow

    powershell

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Run the Power Troubleshooter.

    Power troubleshooter will automatically fix some common issues with Power Plans. Run the Power troubleshooter to adjust your computer's power settings. The Power troubleshooter checks things like your computer's timeout settings, which determine how
    long the computer waits before turning off the monitor display or entering sleep mode. Adjusting these settings can help you conserve power and extend your computer's battery life.


    • Press Windows key + W and type
      Troubleshooting
      .

    • Select Troubleshooting and click on
      System and Security.

    • Click on Power and follow the
      onscreen steps.
    Delete the current power plan and create it again. Refer to the following link to change the power plan to suit your needs.
