  2. Power plan always switches automatically

    Hi,

    I am using a desktop pc and I am constantly having the problem with my power plan.

    I want my PC to stick at the Balanced power plan, but it always switches to power saver by itself! It seems like some program that my PC will auto switch the power plans during the time. I even tried to make a new plan. The PC still switches between balance
    and power savor by itself.

    Power Plan stuck in Balanced Mode.

    I have this bug for some time now but since i couldn't find a fix for it i decided to post it here to see if anybody could help me.

    Basically, my power plan is stuck on Balanced mode and whenever i try to choose the Maximum Performance mode it just resets to Balanced Mode again.

    I have tried to create my own power plan but with no avail, it still reverts to balanced mode. Does anyone know the fix for this?

    Thank you guys in advance and sorry for any spelling/grammar mistakes, English is not my native language.

    power plans are switching back and forth by themselves (from balanced to power saver mode)

    beeping when screen turns off in balanced/power saver plans

    I have Lenovo ideapad300 15ibr laptop with Windows 10 64 bit.

    When on battery in balanced and power saver plans after the screen turns itself off after set time idle there is a beep like when the computer turns on and a sound like a drive spinning up. It then goes quiet and every 20 seconds or so another beep and the
    drive/fan spins up and then goes quiet again.

    Strangely this does not happen in High Performance power plan even if all advanced settings are set to the same as either balanced or power saver. It also does not happen when power cord is plugged in.

    It does not happen in safe mode and so I tried disabling the Intel HD driver which gives the same look as in safe mode but in normal windows the problem remains.

    All drivers appear up to date.

    Is this a feature of windows 10 that it tries to shut down the hard drive when the screen is off and spin up when needed and it just so happens that this makes my laptop beep.

    I can work around this by creating my own power plan based on the high performance plan or by setting balanced and power saver plans to go straight to sleep rather than staying on with screen off.

    I am wondering whether this is a windows issue with a solution or a sign of a hardware problem that could get worse over time e.g hard drive failure

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
