  1. Why are active hours so limited? Can that be changed?


    With the incessant updates lately, I'm reminded of how completely useless the 'Active Hours' 'feature' is. Why does Microsoft need six hours, seven days a week, to restart my computer rather than letting me limit it to the hours in which I'm least likely to be awake? Why can't it vary by day (maybe I'd rather have restarts at 3 am on the weekend, 10 am on work days)? And why can't I default to the scheduled restart option instead of having to switch to it and set it up every time (which is rather a lot lately)?

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages

  3. Disable Active hours?

    Hello Daniel,

    If you wish to add more hours or to have an option to turn off the Active Hours, then the feature is currently unavailable on Windows phone. It is best if you can send a suggestion to make the features available using the
    Feedback Hub app. To send a suggestion on your Windows phone, you can follow the steps provided below:

    • Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback
      Hub app.
    • Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    • Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the
      add
      button (+).
    • Select Suggestionand fill up the box with the details needed.
    • Select the right category and then Submit.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask the community.

    "Active hours" limitation


    I work from home and need my computer operating from about 8-AM to as late as 2-AM the next morning.
    This is a 18 hour span. How can I set my "active hours" to accommodate this? MS only lets me set "active hours" to a maximum span of 12 hours. Since 6 hours of "non-active" time is plenty of time for MS to install updates I see no reason for this 12 limit.
