    How to Rename a Power Plan in Windows 10

    Rename Power Plan in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Information A power plan is a collection of hardware and system settings that manages how computers use and conserve power. A power plan is also known as a power scheme. You can create custom power plans that are optimized for specific computers.

    By default, Windows 10 includes three built-in power plans: Balanced, Power Saver, and High Performance. You can create new plans that are based on the existing plans, or create a new power plan from scratch.

    This tutorial will show you how to rename any power plan on your Windows 10 PC.


    EXAMPLE: Power Plan name before and after

    Here's How:

    1. Open a command prompt.

    2. Copy and paste the command below into the command prompt, and press Enter. This will give you a list of all existing power plans on the PC along with their GUID. (see screenshot below)
    *Arrow powercfg /L

    3. Make note of the GUID of the power plan (ex: "My Custom Plan 1") you want to rename. The power plan with a * at the end is your current active power plan. (see screenshot above)

    4. Type the command below into the command prompt, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)
    *Arrow powercfg -changename GUID "new name"

    Note Substitute GUID in the command above with the actual GUID given in step 3 above for the power plan you want to rename.

    Substitute new name in the command above with the name you want for the power plan.

    For example:
    powercfg -changename 843cff90-8b5d-4248-ba58-2b01035b796a "Customized"

    5. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.




    That's it,
    Shawn

    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.

    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.

      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.
