  1. Windows 10 on Battery Power


    When I unplug the power adapter on my laptop Windows or something goes into a power saving mode that down-clocks my GPU to oblivion making moving windows around a struggle. I would like to know if there is anyway to make this not happen. I don't care about battery life that much, I just want to be able to move it to another room.



    Specs:

    Dell XPS L702X

    CPU; i5 2410M @ 2.30GHz

    RAM: 8 gb ddr3

    GPU: nvidia Geforce GT 550M 1 gb vram
