Windows 10 now performs “Power Throttling” of applications, even traditional Windows desktop programs and background processes. By limiting the CPU available to background applications, Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update can increase battery life on laptops and tablets. You can tell Windows not to perform power throttling for certain processes if this causes a problem.

Why Windows Now Slows Some Programs Down

Modern CPUs have a variety of power states, and can use a low-power mode that is much more energy efficient. When you’re using an application like your web browser, Windows would like to get maximum performance out of your CPU so the application works as fast as possible. However, when applications are just running in the background, Windows would like to put the CPU in its low power state. That background work will still get done, but it will happen a bit slower and the computer will use less power to do the work, increasing your battery life.

To ensure maximum performance for the applications you’re actually using, Microsoft has “built a sophisticated detection system into Windows”. The operating system identifies applications in the foreground, applications playing music, and other categories of important apps, ensuring they won’t be throttled.

If an application doesn’t seem to be important to the user, Windows marks it as available for power throttling. When only these less important processes need to use the CPU, Windows puts it in a low power state. On previous versions of Windows, the operating system wouldn’t be able to transition to that low power state because it treated those background processes the same as foreground processes. Windows now has a way to tell which are important.

This detection process may not always work perfectly, so you can check which applications are marked for Power Throttling and tell Windows they’re important if you don’t want the operating system slowing them down.

This feature is designed to boost battery life on portable PCs, so it’s not used on desktops or on laptops when they’re plugged in. It’s only used when a PC is running on battery power.

How to Check Which Processes Are Power Throttled

Use the Task Manager to check which processes are power throttled on your system. To open it, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc or right-click the taskbar and select “Task Manager”. Click the “Details” tab to view a detailed list of the processes running on your system. If you don’t see the tabs, click the “More details” option first.

In the Details pane, right-click the headings and click “Select Columns”.

Scroll down through the list and enable the “Power Throttling” column. Click “OK” to save your changes.

You’ll now see a Power Throttling column here, which will give you information about each process’s power throttling state. You can drag it around to reposition it, if you like.

If Power Throttling is disabled on your system—for example, if you’re on a desktop PC or laptop that’s plugged in—you’ll just see “Disabled” in this column for every application.

On a portable PC running on battery, you’ll likely see some applications with power throttling “Enabled” and some applications with it “Disabled”.

We saw this in action with Google Chrome. When we had Google Chrome minimized in the background, Windows set Power Throttling to “Enabled” for the chrome.exe processes. When we Alt+Tabbed back to Chrome and it was on our screen, Windows set Power Throttling to “Disabled” for it.

How to Disable Power Throttling System-Wide

To disable power throttling, just plug your portable PC into a power outlet. Power Throttling will always be disabled while the PC is plugged in.

If you can’t plug in right now, you can click the battery icon in the notification area, also known as the system tray. Adjust the power slider to control Power Throttling and other power usage settings.

At “Battery saver” or “Better battery”, Power Throttling will be enabled. At “Better performance”, Power Throttling will be enabled but will be less aggressive. At “Best performance”, Power Throttling will be disabled. Of course, the Best Performance setting will increase power usage and lower your battery life.

How to Disable Power Throttling for an Individual Process

You can also tell Windows to disable Power Throttling for individual processes on your system. This is particularly useful if the auto-detection feature fails and you find Windows throttling important programs, or if a specific background process is important to you and you want it to get maximum CPU resources.

To disable Power Throttling for an application, head to Settings > System > Battery. Click “Battery Usage by App”.

If you don’t see a “Battery” screen here, your PC doesn’t have a battery—which means Power Throttling will never be used.

Select the application you want to adjust here. If an application has “Decided by Windows” underneath it, that means Windows is automatically deciding whether it should be throttled or not.

Uncheck the “Let Windows decide when this app can run in the background” and “Reduce the work app can do when it’s in the background” options here. Power Throttling will now be disabled for that application.

While we’re using Google Chrome as an example here, we don’t recommend disabling Power Throttling for it or any other process unless you have a good reason to do so. This setting will only slow Chrome down when it’s running in the background and will have no effect when you’re actively browsing. The result is improved battery life with no drawback.

In fact, if Power Throttling works properly and never slows something down when you care about it, you should never have to tweak it at all.

Microsoft’s work on a new power saving technology called Power Throttling continues in the latest Windows Insider builds.

The feature is designed to improve the power consumption of a battery-powered device running Windows 10 by handling the power consumption of background tasks better.

Note: Power Throttling is a temporary name for the feature. The current iteration works only on systems with Intel’s 6th-generation or later Core processors. The company plans to improve support in the coming months.

Most Windows users run multiple programs at the same time. A web browser and video player, multiple browsers, an email client, image editor, games, image viewers, and a lot more.

All of these programs drain power, even if they run in the background. Microsoft’s first batch of experiments showed that Power Throttling could save up to 11% in CPU power consumption. While the actual mileage may vary depending on the programs that are run and throttled, it is quite useful for battery powered Windows devices.

Windows 10 Power Throttling

Microsoft’s describes Power Throttling in the following way:

With “Power Throttling”, when background work is running, Windows places the CPU in its most energy efficient operating modes – work gets done, but the minimal possible battery is spent on that work.

Microsoft built a detection system into Windows 10 to automate the functionality of the feature. This algorithm detects important work, and protects it from being throttled. Work that is deemed important may include foreground programs, but also background apps such as music players and apps you interact with regularly.

All other applications and programs may be throttled to decrease the device’s power consumption.

Managing Power Throttling

While the system worked well during tests, errors may be made in determining whether programs should be throttled or not.

Windows 10 users have two main options to handle issues that they may run into while Power Throttling is applied to processes on the system:

Switch the Power mode to Best Performance

This turns off Power Throttling completely, but it will increase the power consumption significantly as power saving functions are disabled as well in that mode.

  1. Use Windows-I to open the Settings application.
  2. Go to System > Power, and click on Additional power settings.
  3. Switch the power plan to high performance on the page that opens.

Blacklist apps to exclude them

Use a new blacklist setting in the Battery Settings to opt-out individual applications.

  1. Use Windows-I to open the Settings application.
  2. Go to System > Battery, and click on Battery Usage by App.
  3. Select the application you want to blacklist, and toggle the Managed by Windows preference to off.
  4. Next, remove the checkmark in Reduce work app does when in background as well.

Closing Words

Power Throttling is designed to save power on Windows 10 devices. It remains to be seen how much power Windows 10 users will save with the feature enabled on the release channel.

Microsoft plans to release APIs for developers to give developers “more fine grained control” over the throttling.

If you have a laptop running on a 6th, 7th, or 8th generation Intel Core Processor and you have upgraded to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, your system will automatically begin taking advantage of the new Power Throttling feature. This will enable you to get roughly 10% more life out of your laptop’s battery.

Microsoft has said it plans to expand support to other processors in the future. But for now, let’s take a look at how the Power Throttling feature works.

How does it work?

Prior to the Power Throttling feature, the CPU was always running all apps at full capacity all the time, regardless of whether they were in the foreground or background. Windows reduced power to all apps only after periods of inactivity, i.e., when the laptop was idle. Thus the power savings was either all or nothing.

With the Power Throttling feature, when an application is relegated to the background, Windows will put any CPU resources dedicated to that application into a low power state. The app is still running, but only using the most energy efficient operating mode of the CPU. In this way, the app can operate, but with minimal drain on the battery.

SEE: Windows 10: Streamline your work with these power tips (free TechRepublic PDF)

Windows 10’s Power Throttling feature also incorporates a sophisticated detection system that can differentiate between those apps running in the background that are important to you and those that aren’t. To do so, Windows 10 monitors app usage and bases its decisions on the demands of running apps and the apps you regularly interact with even though they’re in the background. It will then make sure that apps that are important get the power they need, while apps that aren’t don’t.

For example, if you are listening to music and relegate your music app to the background, Windows will determine that even though that app is in the background, it is still performing a task that is important to you and will make sure that app receives the power that it needs to perform its task. On the other hand, a word processing app that is relegated to the background isn’t doing any real work, so power to that app will be throttled back. Even so, a power throttled app will still be able to perform necessary tasks such as an automatic save operation for a word processing app.

Taskbar Notification Area

If your laptop meets the requirements and you are running on battery power, you’ll find that you can adjust the overall level of Power Throttling that Windows 10 will employ system wide from the Taskbar Notification Area via the Power icon. Just click the Power icon and you’ll see the power mode slider, which has four positions, as shown in Figure A.

Figure A

The power mode slider allows you to determine how aggressively you want to apply the Power Throttling feature.

This slider lets you determine how aggressively you want to apply the Power Throttling feature. The four positions range from Battery Saver, which provides the maximum power throttling, to Best Performance, which disables Power Throttling. In between, you’ll find the Better Battery and Better Performance positions.

When you plug in your laptop, you’ll see that the power mode slider shows (plugged in) and automatically jumps to Best Performance, which again disables Power Throttling. You can see this state in Figure B.

Figure B

When your laptop is plugged in, Windows 10 disables the Power Throttling feature.

Viewing Power Throttling

Of course, if your laptop is using the Power Throttling feature, you’ll want to see it in action. You can do so in Task Manager after you add the Power Throttling column. To begin, right-click on the Taskbar and select Task Manager. When the window appears, select the Details tab, right-click on the Name column header, and choose Select Columns. Then, select the Power Throttling check box, as shown in Figure C, and click OK.

Figure C

Select the Power Throttling check box.

Once you do so, the Power Throttling column will appear in the Details tab’s display. As you can see in Figure D, I moved Power Throttling to the left and positioned it next to the Name column. I also moved the Status column down. I then sorted the display by the Power Throttling column.

Figure D

You can see Power Throttling in action by enabling the column in Task Manager.

If you look at the Windows Store app process (WinStore.App.exe), you can see that Power Throttling is enabled for the app and its Status is listed as Suspended. This status indicates that the Windows Store app is minimized in the background and is drawing minimal battery power. Looking at the File Explorer process (explorer.exe), you can see that even though Power Throttling is enabled for it, File Explorer’s Status is Running because it is still in the foreground and I was just using it.

Disabling the Power Throttling feature

By default, Windows 10 will enable the Power Throttling feature for every app it can. However, you may find that certain apps don’t work well with the Power Throttling feature. If so, you can disable the Power Throttling feature for that app.

Of course, you can disable the Power Throttling feature system wide using the power mode slider. But to disable the feature for a single app, access Settings and select System | Battery. Then, select Battery Usage By App. When you see the screen shown in Figure E, locate and select the app to expand the Battery Usage panel. Then, clear the Let Windows Decide check box.

Figure E

You can disable the Power Throttling feature for a single app.

What’s your take?

Does your laptop’s CPU support Windows 10’s new Power Throttling feature? If so, have you noticed better battery life? Share your experiences and opinions with fellow TechRepublic members.

One of the new features found in Microsoft’s Windows 10 April 2018 update is power throttling. The power throttling feature is designed to help increase the battery life on mobile devices by scaling back the amount of CPU resources consumed by certain background tasks.

It isn’t exactly surprising that Microsoft would include a CPU throttling feature with Windows. Windows has included a variety of power management features for many years now. CPU throttling is simply the latest feature geared at helping to reduce power consumption.

While stretching battery life and maybe even helping the environment in the process is typically good things, there are those of us who prefer performance over power savings. After all, nobody pays a premium price for the fastest CPU available because they want to throttle down their computer’s performance. Fortunately, like so many other Windows power management features, CPU throttling is customizable. If you want to configure your PC to use the least amount of power possible, you can certainly do that. If, on the other hand, you would prefer to completely disable any power saving features, you can do that too. Of course, you can also take a more balanced approach that falls somewhere in the middle.

How to disable power throttling

Power throttling is typically enabled by default, but there are a couple of ways to disable it. One option is to simply click on the power icon in the system tray and then drag the Power Mode slide bar to the Best Performance position.

Of course, if you need to control power throttling for multiple PCs, then you are going to be better off using group policy. You can find the power throttling settings within the group policy editor at Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Power Management | Power Throttling Settings. As you can see in the figure below, group policy gives you the ability to enable or to disable power throttling, but it does not allow for granular configuration. Even so, Microsoft seems to have laid the groundwork for more settings to be added in the future.

Establishing granular control

So far, I have explained that power throttling is enabled by default, and I have shown you how you can disable it if necessary. More often, though, it will probably be beneficial to manage power throttling at a granular level. To understand why this is beneficial (beyond just helping to improve battery life) you need to know a little bit about what power throttling is actually doing.

As previously mentioned, power throttling works by decreasing the CPU resources used in servicing applications that are running in the background. The power throttling feature does not completely deprive background apps of CPU resources but instead runs background apps in a way that reduces power consumption. Of course, just because an application is in the background does not mean that it isn’t doing anything. Windows is able to examine application resource consumption to determine which applications are actively performing tasks and therefore it avoids throttling those applications in a disruptive way.

This brings up a really important point. Power throttling works on a per-application basis. You don’t necessarily have to let the power throttling feature treat every application on your system the same way. You can choose to allow some applications to be throttled while disabling throttling for other applications. For example, I have been doing a lot of work this week stitching together 360-degree videos. The stitching process runs in the background, but because this process is so time-consuming as it is, having Windows throttle the CPU resources used by the stitching process would be a bad thing. Hence, it is possible to disable CPU throttling for my video stitching software.

If you would like to see power throttling in action, open the Windows Task Manager. The Task Manager actually shows you which applications are currently running in battery saver mode. If you look at the figure below, you can see the leaf icon in the Status column, indicating battery savings.

If you want a bit more information, then go to the Details tab, right-click on a column header, and choose the Select Columns option from the shortcut menu. This presents you with a list of columns that you can view. As you can see in the next figure, one of these columns is power throttling. Displaying the power throttling column will allow you to see the power throttling status for each individual process. In the figure, for example, I have disabled power throttling for all processes.

OK, so what if you want to control power throttling for an individual application? To do so, click the battery icon on the taskbar, and then click Battery Settings. This takes you to the Battery screen within the Windows Settings page. Now, click on the link labeled See Which Apps Are Affecting Your Battery Life.

As you can see in the figure below, clicking on an app within the resulting list reveals two checkboxes. One checkbox controls whether or not Windows is allowed to decide whether the app can run in the background. The other checkbox is to allow the app to run background tasks.

Normally when you click on an application, the first checkbox is selected by default, and the second checkbox is hidden from view. This means that the operating system has control of the application and is making the decision as to whether or not the application should be able to run tasks in the background. If you would prefer to make that decision yourself, then deselect this checkbox. That will expose the second checkbox, which you should select if you want the application to be able to run background tasks.

Increase performance? Maybe, maybe not

Personally, I have never been a big fan of power saving features because they can get in the way of performance. Even so, it may be possible to use power throttling to increase performance. If you disallow background processing for unimportant processes, you may be able to free up CPU resources for the apps that need them most.

Power Throttling is a new feature built into Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, allowing users to reduce the amount of computer battery consumption to a minimum when applications run in the background. Let’s see how Power Throttling works!

  2. Right-click anywhere in the column headers and click Select columns.
  3. Scroll down to Power Throttling at the bottom of the list and check the box next to add this feature to your display columns.

By default, Windows will detect important applications and arrange them in order of priority when using batteries. However, instead of relying solely on Windows, you can stop unwanted apps to save battery power thanks to Power Throttling.

Are you using the Power Throttling feature on Windows to save battery? How do you see this feature? Let us know by commenting below!

Microsoft can fully concentrate on its upcoming OS now that the Windows 10 Creators Update is available for download. The company recently unveiled a new Windows 10 Redstone 3 feature that will allow users to save up to 11% of their battery life.

Power Throttling saves your battery life

There are some features of the new OS that even if they were promised to ship this spring, they didn’t make it. The power slider is such an example. This tool was supposed to provide users more options for managing power setting. Fortunately, it looks like this feature has evolved into something greater that planned. Microsoft named the new tool Power Throttling and will be available with the Windows 10 Redstone 3 OS.

Microsoft says that it’s already implemented in the newest Windows 10 preview build (16176), and it can currently be tested by users with latest-gen processors, such as Kaby Lake and Skylake. The company also said that even more processors are going to receive support for this feature in the near future.

Power Throttling features

The main target of the Power Throttling is to optimize processes in such a way that the background app will only use a minimum power to run. This way, they’ll impact the battery life as little as possible, and Windows 10 is going to be able to offer 11% longer battery life by cutting power consumption.

Everything happens automatically as Windows 10 is able to detect the apps that should run on reduce power mode.

Microsoft has explained that this sophisticated detection system built into Windows “identifies work that is important to you (apps in the foreground, apps playing music, as well as other categories of important work we infer from the demands of running apps and the apps the user interacts with”.

In the Action Center, users are going to find a new power slider allowing them to adjust the power setting. They’re also going to have the ability of opting out certain apps from power throttling.

Microsoft said that Power Throttling is only a codename for this new feature, and it’s probably going to be renamed before it’s ready to go live this fall in the Windows 10 Redstone 3.

“Windows 10” dabar atlieka “Power Throttling” programų, net tradicinių “Windows” darbalaukio programas ir fono procesus. Apriboję fono programoms prieinamą CPU, “Windows 10” “Fall Creators Update” gali padidinti nešiojamųjų kompiuterių ir planšetinių kompiuterių baterijų naudojimo laiką.

Kodėl “Windows” dabar sulėtins kai kurias programas žemyn

SUSIJĘS: Kas naujo “Windows 10” naujokų kūrėjų atnaujinimui, dabar galima įsigyti

Šiuolaikiniai procesoriai turi daugybę galios būsenų ir gali naudoti mažos galios režimą, kuris yra kur kas efektyvesnis. Kai naudojate programą, pvz., Savo naršyklę, “Windows” norėtų gauti maksimalų našumą iš savo procesoriaus, kad programa veiktų kuo greičiau. Tačiau, kai programos veikia tik fone, Windows norėtų įdėti CPU į mažos galios būseną. Šis fono darbas vis tiek bus baigtas, tačiau tai įvyks šiek tiek lėčiau ir kompiuteris sunaudos mažiau energijos, kad atliktų darbą, padidintų baterijos veikimo laiką.

norint užtikrinti maksimalų efektyvumą programose, kurias naudojate, “Microsoft” “Sukūrė sudėtingą aptikimo sistemą į” Windows “. Operacinė sistema atpažįsta programas į priekinį planą, muzikos programas ir kitas svarbių programų kategorijas, užtikrinančias, kad jos nebus slopinamos.

Jei programa neatrodo esanti svarbi vartotojui, “Windows” pažymi ją kaip galima galios droseliui. Kai tik šie mažiau svarbūs procesai turi naudoti centrinį procesorių, “Windows” įjungia jį mažo galingumo būsenoje. Ankstesnėse “Windows” versijose operacinė sistema negalės pereiti prie tos mažos galios būsenos, nes tokie foniniai procesai buvo tokie patys kaip ir pirminio žinių procesai. Dabar “Windows” gali pasakyti, kas yra svarbu.

Šis aptikimo procesas ne visada gali būti idealus, todėl galite patikrinti, kokios programos pažymėtos “Power Throttling” ir pasakykite “Windows”, kad jie yra svarbūs, jei nenorite, kad operacinė sistema

Ši funkcija skirta nešiojamųjų kompiuterių baterijos veikimui padidinti, todėl ji nenaudojama darbastaliuose ar nešiojamuose kompiuteriuose, kai jie yra prijungti. Jis naudojamas tik tada, kai kompiuteris veikia su baterija.

Kaip patikrinti, kokie procesai yra sulaikomi.

Naudokite užduočių tvarkyklę, norėdami patikrinti, kokie procesai jūsų sistemoje yra įjungiami. Norėdami atidaryti, paspauskite Ctrl + Shift + Esc arba dešiniuoju pelės mygtuku spustelėkite užduočių juostą ir pasirinkite “Task Manager”. Spustelėkite skirtuką “Išsami informacija”, jei norite peržiūrėti išsamų jūsų sistemoje veikiančių procesų sąrašą. Jei nematote skirtukų, pirmiausia spustelėkite “Daugiau informacijos”.

Informacijos srityje dešiniuoju pelės klavišu spustelėkite antraštes ir spustelėkite “Pasirinkti stulpelius”.

Slinkite žemyn per sąrašą ir įjunkite ” Stulpelis “Power Throttling”. Spustelėkite “Gerai”, jei norite išsaugoti pakeitimus.

Dabar pamatysite stulpelį “Power Throttling”, kuriame pateikiama informacija apie kiekvieno proceso jėgos reguliavimo būseną. Jei norite, galite jį vilkti, jei norite jį perkelti į kitą vietą.

Jei jūsų sistemoje yra išjungta “Power Throttling”, pvz., Jei esate ant prijungto stalinio kompiuterio ar nešiojamojo kompiuterio, pamatysite tik “Išjungta” šiame stulpelyje kiekvienai programai.

Nešiojamame kompiuteryje, kuriame veikia baterija, greičiausiai matysite kai kurias programas su galios droseliu “Įjungta” ir kai kurias programas su juo “Išjungta”.

Tai matėme su “Google” “Chrome” Kai “Google Chrome” sumažino foną, “Windows” nustatė “Power throttling”, kad “Enabled” veiktų chrome.exe procesai. Kai mes spustelėjome “Alt +” skirtuką grįžtame prie “Chrome” ir jis buvo mūsų ekrane, “Windows” nustatė “Power Throttling”, kad “Disabled”.

Kaip išjungti maitinimo droseliavimo sistemą-Wide

Norėdami išjungti maitinimo ribojimą, tiesiog prijunkite savo nešiojamąjį kompiuterį į maitinimo lizdą. “Power Throttling” visada bus išjungtas, kai įjungtas kompiuteris.

Jei negalėsite prisijungti dabar, galite spustelėti akumuliatoriaus piktogramą pranešimų srityje, dar vadinamą sistemos dėkle. Nustatykite galios slankiklį, kad galėtumėte valdyti maitinimo srovę ir kitus energijos vartojimo parametrus.

“Battery saver” arba “Better battery” bus įjungtas “Power throttling”. “Geresnio veikimo” metu “Power Throttling” bus įjungtas, bet bus mažiau agresyvus. “Geriausio veikimo” metu “Power throttling” bus išjungtas. Žinoma, “Best Performance” nustatymas padidins energijos sąnaudas ir sumažins akumuliatoriaus tarnavimo laiką.

Kaip išjungti maitinimo reguliavimą individualiam procesui

Taip pat galite nurodyti “Windows” išjungti “Power throttling” atskiriems procesams jūsų sistemoje. Tai ypač naudinga, jei automatinio aptikimo funkcija nepavyksta, ir jūs pastebite, kad “Windows” deda visas svarbias programas arba jei jums svarbus tam tikras fono procesas ir norite, kad jis gautų maksimalų procesoriaus išteklių.

Norėdami išjungti “Power Throttling” eikite į “Settings”> “System”> “Battery”. Spustelėkite “Baterijos naudojimas pagal programą”.

Jei čia nematote “Baterijos” ekrano, jūsų kompiuteryje nėra akumuliatoriaus, tai reiškia, kad “Power Throttling” niekada nebus naudojamas.

Pasirinkite norimą programą. prisitaikyti čia. Jei programoje yra “Sprendimas pagal Windows”, tai reiškia, kad “Windows” automatiškai nusprendžia, ar ji turėtų būti sušvelninta. “

Išvalykite žymės langelį” Leiskite “Windows” nuspręsti, kada ši programa gali būti paleista fone “ir” Sumažinkite darbo programą ” gali padaryti, kai tai yra fone “parinktys čia. Šiuo atveju “Power Throttling” bus išjungta.

Nors mes naudojame “Google Chrome” kaip pavyzdį, mes nerekomenduojame išjungti “Power throttling” juo ar bet kokiam kitam procesui, nebent turite tam tinkamą priežastį. Šis nustatymas lėtina “Chrome”, kai jis veikia fone, ir nebus veiksmingas, kai naršote aktyviai. Rezultatas yra geresnis akumuliatoriaus veikimo laikas, be jokio trūkumo.

Iš tiesų, jei “Power Throttling” veikia tinkamai ir niekada lėtina kažką, kai jums tai rūpi, niekada neturėtumėte jo įgnybti.

Uber ir Lyft yra dvi labai panašios paslaugos. Abi yra “važiavimo pasidalijimo” programos, kurias galite prikabinti savo telefone, norėdami greitai važiuoti kažkur iš vairuotojo naudodami savo automobilį. Šios dvi tarnybos per pastaruosius metus tampa vis labiau panašios, tačiau tarp jų vis dar yra didelių skirtumų.

2003 M. Vaikščiojau per dorms, kai jį pamačiau: stalą su trimis kompiuterio monitoriais, visus su “Matrix” ekrano užsklanda, rodomu žaliu tekstu. Atsirado juokinga, bet aš maniau, kad tai tik kieta. Negalima meluoti, jūs taip pat turėtumėte. Šiomis dienomis aš nenaudojau ekrano užsklandos, ir jūs tikriausiai taip pat ne.

Windows 10 ในขณะนี้ดำเนินการ“ การควบคุมปริมาณพลังงาน” ของแอพพลิเคชั่นแม้แต่โปรแกรมเดสก์ท็อป Windows ดั้งเดิมและกระบวนการพื้นหลัง ด้วยการ จำกัด ซีพียูที่พร้อมใช้งานกับแอปพลิเคชั่นพื้นหลังการปรับปรุง Fall Creators ของ Windows 10 สามารถเพิ่มอายุการใช้งานแบตเตอรี่ในแล็ปท็อปและแท็บเล็ต คุณสามารถบอก Windows ไม่ให้ทำการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานสำหรับกระบวนการบางอย่างหากนี่เป็นสาเหตุของปัญหา.

ทำไม Windows ตอนนี้ทำให้บางโปรแกรมช้าลง

CPU ที่ทันสมัยมีสถานะพลังงานที่หลากหลายและสามารถใช้โหมดพลังงานต่ำที่มีประสิทธิภาพการใช้พลังงานมากขึ้น เมื่อคุณใช้งานแอพพลิเคชั่นเช่นเว็บเบราว์เซอร์ Windows ต้องการรับประสิทธิภาพสูงสุดจาก CPU ของคุณเพื่อให้แอปพลิเคชันทำงานได้เร็วที่สุด อย่างไรก็ตามเมื่อแอปพลิเคชันเพิ่งทำงานในพื้นหลัง Windows ต้องการทำให้ CPU อยู่ในสถานะใช้พลังงานต่ำ การทำงานในพื้นหลังนั้นจะยังคงเสร็จ แต่จะเกิดขึ้นช้าลงเล็กน้อยและคอมพิวเตอร์จะใช้พลังงานน้อยลงในการทำงานเพิ่มอายุการใช้งานแบตเตอรี่ของคุณ.

เพื่อให้มั่นใจถึงประสิทธิภาพสูงสุดสำหรับแอปพลิเคชันที่คุณใช้งานจริง Microsoft ได้สร้าง “ระบบตรวจจับที่ซับซ้อนใน Windows” ระบบปฏิบัติการจะระบุแอปพลิเคชันในเบื้องหน้าแอปพลิเคชันที่เล่นเพลงและแอพที่สำคัญอื่น ๆ เพื่อให้แน่ใจว่าแอปจะไม่ถูกควบคุม.

หากแอปพลิเคชันไม่สำคัญต่อผู้ใช้ Windows จะทำเครื่องหมายว่าแอปพลิเคชันพร้อมใช้งานสำหรับการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงาน เมื่อกระบวนการที่สำคัญน้อยกว่าเหล่านี้จำเป็นต้องใช้ CPU Windows จะทำให้อยู่ในสถานะใช้พลังงานต่ำ ใน Windows รุ่นก่อนหน้าระบบปฏิบัติการจะไม่สามารถเปลี่ยนเป็นสถานะพลังงานต่ำได้เนื่องจากจะถือว่ากระบวนการพื้นหลังเหล่านั้นเหมือนกับกระบวนการพื้นหน้า Windows มีวิธีบอกได้ว่าสิ่งใดสำคัญ.

กระบวนการตรวจจับนี้อาจทำงานได้ไม่สมบูรณ์นักดังนั้นคุณสามารถตรวจสอบว่าแอพพลิเคชั่นใดถูกทำเครื่องหมายสำหรับ Power Throttling และบอก Windows ว่าสำคัญถ้าคุณไม่ต้องการให้ระบบปฏิบัติการช้าลง.

วิธีการตรวจสอบกระบวนการที่มีการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงาน

ใช้ตัวจัดการงานเพื่อตรวจสอบว่ากระบวนการใดเป็นระบบควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานในระบบของคุณ ในการเปิดให้กด Ctrl + Shift + Esc หรือคลิกขวาที่ทาสก์บาร์แล้วเลือก“ ตัวจัดการงาน” คลิกแท็บ“ รายละเอียด” เพื่อดูรายการโดยละเอียดของกระบวนการที่ทำงานอยู่ในระบบของคุณ หากคุณไม่เห็นแท็บให้คลิกตัวเลือก“ รายละเอียดเพิ่มเติม” ก่อน.

เลื่อนลงไปตามรายการและเปิดใช้งานคอลัมน์ “การควบคุมปริมาณพลังงาน” คลิก“ ตกลง” เพื่อบันทึกการเปลี่ยนแปลงของคุณ.

ตอนนี้คุณจะเห็นคอลัมน์ Power Throttling ที่นี่ซึ่งจะให้ข้อมูลเกี่ยวกับสถานะการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานของแต่ละกระบวนการ คุณสามารถลากไปมาเพื่อเปลี่ยนตำแหน่งได้หากต้องการ.

หาก Power Throttling ถูกปิดการใช้งานบนระบบของคุณเช่นถ้าคุณอยู่บนเดสก์ท็อปพีซีหรือแล็ปท็อปที่เสียบปลั๊กอยู่คุณจะเห็น“ ปิดใช้งาน” ในคอลัมน์นี้สำหรับทุกแอปพลิเคชัน.

ในพีซีแบบพกพาที่ใช้พลังงานจากแบตเตอรี่คุณอาจเห็นแอพพลิเคชั่นบางตัวที่มีการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงาน“ เปิดใช้งาน” และบางแอพพลิเคชั่นที่ใช้งาน“ ปิดใช้งาน”.

เราเห็นสิ่งนี้ในการดำเนินการกับ Google Chrome เมื่อเราลด Google Chrome ไว้ในพื้นหลัง Windows จะตั้งค่า Power Throttling เป็น“ Enabled” สำหรับกระบวนการ chrome.exe เมื่อเรา Alt + แท็บกลับไปที่ Chrome และอยู่บนหน้าจอของเรา Windows จะตั้งค่า Power Throttling เป็น“ Disabled”.

วิธีการปิดการใช้งานการควบคุมปริมาณไฟฟ้าทั้งระบบ

หากต้องการปิดใช้งานการควบคุมปริมาณไฟฟ้าเพียงเสียบพีซีแบบพกพาของคุณเข้ากับเต้าเสียบไฟฟ้า Power Throttling จะถูกปิดการใช้งานเสมอในขณะที่ต่อกับพีซี.

หากคุณไม่สามารถเชื่อมต่อได้ในตอนนี้คุณสามารถคลิกที่ไอคอนแบตเตอรี่ในพื้นที่แจ้งเตือนหรือที่เรียกว่าถาดระบบ ปรับแถบเลื่อนพลังงานเพื่อควบคุมการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานและการตั้งค่าการใช้พลังงานอื่น ๆ.

ที่ “ประหยัดแบตเตอรี่” หรือ “แบตเตอรี่ดีกว่า” จะเปิดใช้งานการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงาน ที่ “ประสิทธิภาพที่ดีขึ้น” Power Throttling จะเปิดใช้งาน แต่จะก้าวร้าวน้อยลง ที่ “ประสิทธิภาพที่ดีที่สุด” Power Throttling จะถูกปิดการใช้งาน แน่นอนการตั้งค่าประสิทธิภาพที่ดีที่สุดจะเพิ่มการใช้พลังงานและลดอายุการใช้งานแบตเตอรี่ของคุณ.

วิธีการปิดใช้งานการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานสำหรับกระบวนการส่วนบุคคล

นอกจากนี้คุณยังสามารถบอกให้ Windows ปิดการใช้งานการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานสำหรับแต่ละกระบวนการในระบบของคุณ สิ่งนี้มีประโยชน์อย่างยิ่งหากคุณสมบัติการตรวจจับอัตโนมัติล้มเหลวและคุณพบว่าโปรแกรมที่สำคัญในการควบคุมปริมาณของ Windows หรือหากกระบวนการพื้นหลังเฉพาะมีความสำคัญต่อคุณ.

หากต้องการปิดใช้งาน Power Throttling สำหรับแอปพลิเคชันให้ไปที่การตั้งค่า> ระบบ> แบตเตอรี่ คลิก“ การใช้แบตเตอรี่ตามแอพ”.

หากคุณไม่เห็นหน้าจอ “แบตเตอรี่” ที่นี่พีซีของคุณไม่มีแบตเตอรี่ซึ่งหมายความว่าจะไม่มีการใช้ Power Throttling.

เลือกแอปพลิเคชันที่คุณต้องการปรับที่นี่ หากแอปพลิเคชันมี“ ตัดสินใจโดย Windows” ข้างใต้นั่นหมายความว่า Windows กำลังตัดสินใจโดยอัตโนมัติว่าควรจะควบคุมปริมาณหรือไม่.

ยกเลิกการเลือกตัวเลือก“ ให้ Windows ตัดสินใจได้ว่าเมื่อไรที่แอพนี้สามารถทำงานในเบื้องหลัง” และ“ ลดแอพที่ทำงานได้เมื่ออยู่ในพื้นหลัง” ที่นี่ Power Throttling จะถูกปิดการใช้งานสำหรับแอปพลิเคชันนั้น.

ในขณะที่เรากำลังใช้ Google Chrome เป็นตัวอย่างที่นี่เราไม่แนะนำให้ปิดการใช้งานการควบคุมปริมาณพลังงานสำหรับมันหรือกระบวนการอื่น ๆ ยกเว้นว่าคุณมีเหตุผลที่ดีที่จะทำเช่นนั้น การตั้งค่านี้จะทำให้ Chrome ทำงานช้าลงเมื่อทำงานในพื้นหลังเท่านั้นและจะไม่มีผลเมื่อคุณใช้งานอินเทอร์เน็ต ผลลัพธ์คือปรับปรุงอายุการใช้งานแบตเตอรี่โดยไม่มีข้อ จำกัด.

ในความเป็นจริงถ้า Power Throttling ทำงานได้อย่างถูกต้องและไม่เคยทำอะไรช้าลงเมื่อคุณใส่ใจคุณไม่ควรปรับแต่งเลย.

Microsoft claims that Windows 10’s new power-throttling feature will boost battery life by about 11 percent, though you’ll need a modern laptop to take advantage of it.

Microsoft introduced the new feature to slow down background apps in January, as a trial feature for a subset of users running Insider versions of Windows 10. While power-throttling is still limited to Insiders, the recent Build 16176 made it more widely available.

There’s one catch: Power throttling leverages Intel’s Speed Shift technology, which debuted in Intel’s sixth-generation (Skylake) Core chips that began shipping in late 2015. Current laptops with AMD processors won’t be able to take advantage of the power savings, a Microsoft representative confirmed, though that could change in the near future: The representative added that the company’s “working on expanding support to other processors as well over the next few months.”

Here’s what apps will look like when throttled.

Windows 10 power throttling appears to work in a somewhat similar manner to the Game Mode that appeared in the stable version of the Windows 10 Creators Update. It looks at the processes that your PC is currently running, and attempts to identify what you’re currently using and what you have running in the background. (In Game Mode, of course, the foreground app is a game.)

Windows 10’s power slider.

According to a blog post by Bill Karagounis, Microsoft’s director of program management for the Windows Insider Program and OS fundamentals, Windows is smart enough to know that even apps playing music in the background shouldn’t be throttled.

Users will also have some control over which applications are throttled. In the Taskbar, for example, the power icon will pop up to expose a slider, where users will have the ability to choose between Battery Saver, Recommended, or Best Performance. The latter setting will turn off power throttling completely, as will plugging your laptop into a wall socket.

Users will also have the option of manually configuring apps to select their battery use in the new Insider Builds: go to Settings > System > Battery, then select each app. You’ll need to make sure you toggle the Managed by Windows setting to Off.

Why this matters: Building free battery-boosting technology Windows is a terrific perk for laptop users, even if it’s only currently available to Insiders who own modern Intel-powered PCs.

I n this tutorial, we are going to see how to disable power throttling in Windows 10. Want to run apps without any restrictions? Follow these steps to disable the power limitation feature in Windows 10.

Windows 10 has a new feature called PowerLimitation that prevents apps from draining your battery or using an excessive amount of power. As you can see, this feature is quite useful for laptop users where battery life and power-up time are more important than apps running at full capacity.

With that said, you may be a power user and need your applications to run at full capacity to get the job done. In these cases, you can simply disable the power limit feature.

Method 1: How to Disable Power Throttling in Windows 10 Using GpEit

Step 1: Right-click on the Start button, select Run.

Step 2: Type gpedit.msc and press Enter to open the Local Group Policy Editor.

Step 3: After that, navigate to the following path:

Find and double-click the Turn off Power Throttling policy.

Step 4: In the policy settings window, select the Enabled option and click the OK button to save the changes.

To apply the policy, restart your PC.

Method 2: How to Disable Power Throttling in Windows 10 Using Regedit

Step 1: To disable power throttling in Windows 10 using Regedit. Right-click on the Start button, select Run.

Step 2: Type regedit and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.

Step 3: After that, navigate to the following Registry key:

Step 4: Now, right click on the Power folder and select New → Key.

Step 5: Name the new folder PowerThrottling.

Step 6: Now, right-click on the PowerThrottling folder and select New → DWORD (32 bits) Value.

Step 7: Name the value PowerThrottlingOff. Now double-click on the created value, enter “1” in the Value data field and click the OK button to save the changes.

Finally, restart Windows to apply the changes.

For almost any Windows user, it is very typical to use multiple applications at the same time while running a few more in the background. More often than not, depending on how many background apps are running on your laptop, they can drain your laptop battery sooner than you think. To deal with this, Microsoft introduced a new feature called Power Throttling in Windows 10 Fall Creators update (ver. 1709).

Actually, this feature should have been launched with the Creators update, but it got delayed due to issues and made its debut in the Fall Creators update. As you can tell from the name itself, Power Throttling limits the amount of the battery power background apps can use, thus increasing the battery life and mileage. According to Microsoft, Power Throttling improves laptop battery life by around 11 percent.

This feature is enabled by default in laptops and tablets. Though Windows is good at detecting background apps and limiting power, there might be situations where this feature is not so desirable. Thankfully, Microsoft made it easy to check and disable the Power Throttling feature. The following tutorial will show you how to do it.

Check Which Apps Are Throttled

You can easily check which apps are throttled and which are not using the good old task manager.

1. Open the task manager by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting the “Task Manager” option.

2. In the Task Manager, navigate to “Details” tab, right-click on one of the column names and select “Select Column.”

3. In the Select Columns window, scroll down to the bottom, select the checkbox “Power Throttling” and click on the “OK” button.

Now you can see a new section called Power Throttling in the Details tab. You can see which apps are throttled while on battery. If an app is throttled, you will see “Enabled” in the Power Throttling section. If you see “Disabled”, then the app is not throttled.

Manage Power Throttling Using Power Settings

You can quickly enable, disable, or restrict the Power Throttling feature in Windows using the battery slider that appears when you click on the battery icon in your taskbar. Currently, Windows 10 has four different power modes.

  • Battery Saver: Completely enables Power Throttling.
  • Better Battery: Same as Battery Saver mode, Power Throttling is enabled.
  • Better Performance: In this mode, Power Throttling mode is restricted and only applies for a very few power-hungry background apps.
  • Best Performance: Power Throttling is completely disabled.

Just choose the power mode using the slider and you are good to go. Depending on which power mode you choose, the Power Throttling feature will be enabled, restricted or disabled.

Disable Power Throttling Using Group Policy Editor

If you don’t want to bother with Power Throttling and want all your apps to work at full potential, then you can completely disable Power Throttling using the Group Policy Editor.

1. Open Group Policy Editor by searching for gpedit.msc in the Start Menu.

2. In the Group Policy Editor, navigate to “Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Power Throttling Settings.” Now find the “Turn off Power Throttling” policy on the right panel and double-click on it to open it.

3. In the policy properties window, select the radio option “Enable” and then click on the “OK” button to save the changes.

Just restart your system, and you’ve successfully disabled the Power Throttling feature. If you want to re-enable Power Throttling, select “Disabled” in the policy properties window.

Disable Power Throttling Using Registry Editor

If you don’t have access to Group Policy Editor, you can do the same thing using Windows Registry Editor. Before modifying the Registry, create a backup for safety reasons. Once you’ve done that, open Registry Editor by searching for regedit in the Start Menu.

Copy and paste the below path in the address bar and press enter to navigate to the target key.

We need to create a new key and value to disable Power Throttling. To do that, right-click on the “Power” key and select “New -> Key.”

Name the new key as “PowerThrottling” and press Enter to confirm the change.

After creating the key, right-click on the right panel and select “New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.”

Name the new DWORD value as “PowerThrottlingOff” and press enter to confirm the name.

By default, the value data will be “0,” meaning Power Throttling is enabled. To change that, double-click on the newly created key, enter “1” in the Value Data field and click on the “OK” button to save the changes.

That’s it. Restart your system to make the changes take effect. From this point on, Power Throttling is completely disabled. If ever want to re-enable Power Throttling, simply change the Value Data back to “0” or delete the “PowerThrottling” key created earlier.

Conclusion

Should you disable Power Throttling on your laptop? If you don’t mind a bit of performance loss for a better life, then you should let the defaults be. Windows will do a pretty good job, and I haven’t faced any issues with the default settings.

However, if you want the best performance whether you are plugged in or not, then you might want to disable Power Throttling. Even if you decide to disable the feature, I recommend you use the first method, as it gives you better control without messing up the policies or registry keys.

Want to run apps without any restrictions? Follow these steps to disable the Power Throttling feature in Windows 10.

Windows 10 has a new feature called Power Throttling that limits the apps from draining your battery or using an excessive amount of power. As you can tell, this feature is pretty useful for laptop users where the battery life and power-on time is more important than the apps running at full potential.

That being said, maybe you are a power user and need your apps to run at their full potential to get the work done. In those cases, you can simply disable the Power Throttling feature.

Without further ado, let me show you how.

Change Group Policy

Group Policy Editor provides an easy way to change the Power Throttling settings. All you have to do is select an option and you are good to go.

1. First, open the Group Policy Editor by searching for “Edit Group Policy” in the Start Menu. Alternatively, you can also use “gpedit.msc” Run command (Win + R).

2. Once the Group Policy Editor has been opened, you will see a bunch of folders on the left panel. Expand the folder and go to the following location.

Computer Configuration → Administrative Templates → System → Power Management → Power Throttling Settings

3. In this folder, you will see a couple of policies on the right panel. From there, find and double-click on the “Turn off Power Throttling” policy.

4. In the policy settings window, select the “Enabled” option and click on the “Ok” button to save changes.

5. Though you’ve changed the policy, it is not yet applied. To apply the policy, reboot Windows. Once you reboot, the policy will be applied automatically.

That is it. From now on, Windows will not throttle your application even if you are using the battery power. If you ever want to power throttle and save battery, simply go through the process again and select the “Disabled” option in step 4.

Edit Registry to Disable Power Throttling

As an alternative, you can also use the Registry Editor to disable the power throttling feature. This is particularly useful if you are using Windows 10 Home version. Though the procedure is pretty simple and easy to follow, I recommend you back up the registry first. The backup will be helpful in the time of need.

1. First, open the start menu, search for “Registry Editor” and click on the result to open the Registry Editor. After opening it, go to the following location by expanding the folders on the left panel.

2. Now, right-click on the “Power” folder and select “New → Key”. Name the new folder as “PowerThrottling”.

3. Now, right-click on the “PowerThrottling” folder and select “New → DWORD (32-bit) Value”. Name the value as “PowerThrottlingOff”.

4. Double-click on the newly created value, type “1” in the Value Data field and click on the “Ok” button to save changes.

5. Finally, reboot Windows to apply the changes.

That is all. Power Throttling is disabled and you are good to go. To revert back, simply delete the PowerThrottlingOff value or change its value data to “0”.

Windows 10 udfører nu “Power Throttling” af programmer, selv traditionelle Windows-desktopprogrammer og baggrundsprocesser. Ved at begrænse CPU’en til baggrundsapplikationer kan Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update øge batterilevetiden på bærbare computere og tabletter. Du kan fortælle Windows, at du ikke udfører power throttling til bestemte processer, hvis dette forårsager et problem.

Hvorfor Windows Nu Sænker Nogle Programmer Ned

RELATERET: Hvad er nyt i Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update, tilgængelig nu

Moderne CPU’er har en række strømtilstande, og kan bruge en lav-strømtilstand, som er meget mere energieffektiv. Når du bruger et program som din webbrowser, vil Windows gerne få maksimal ydelse ud af din CPU, så applikationen fungerer så hurtigt som muligt. Men når programmer kun kører i baggrunden, vil Windows gerne sætte CPU’en i sin lave strømtilstand. Det baggrundsarbejde vil stadig blive gjort, men det vil ske lidt langsommere, og computeren vil bruge mindre strøm til at gøre arbejdet, hvilket øger batteriets levetid.

For at sikre maksimal ydeevne for de programmer, du rent faktisk bruger, har Microsoft “Bygget et sofistikeret detektionssystem til Windows”. Operativsystemet identificerer applikationer i forgrunden, applikationer, der afspiller musik og andre kategorier af vigtige apps, så de ikke bliver spredt.

Hvis en applikation ikke synes at være vigtig for brugeren, markerer Windows den som ledig til kraftgashandling. Når kun disse mindre vigtige processer skal bruge CPU’en, sætter Windows den i en lav strømtilstand. På tidligere versioner af Windows ville operativsystemet ikke kunne overgå til den lave strømtilstand, fordi den behandlede disse baggrundsprocesser det samme som forgrundsprocesser. Windows har nu en måde at fortælle, hvilke er vigtige.

Denne detektionsproces kan muligvis ikke fungere perfekt, så du kan tjekke hvilke applikationer der er markeret for Power Throttling og fortælle Windows, at de er vigtige, hvis du ikke vil have operativsystemet sænker dem ned.

Denne funktion er designet til at øge batterilevetiden på bærbare pc’er, så den bruges ikke på computere eller på bærbare computere, når de er tilsluttet. Den bruges kun, når en pc kører på batteristrøm.

Sådan kontrolleres hvilke processer der er strømforstyrret

Brug opgavehåndteringen til at kontrollere, hvilke processer der er strømspændt på dit system. For at åbne den skal du trykke på Ctrl + Shift + Esc eller højreklikke på proceslinjen og vælge “Task Manager”. Klik på fanen “Detaljer” for at få vist en detaljeret liste over de processer, der kører på dit system. Hvis du ikke ser fanerne, skal du først klikke på knappen “Flere detaljer”.

Højreklik på overskrifterne i vinduet Detaljer og klik på “Vælg kolonner”.

Rul ned gennem listen, og aktiver ” Power Throttling “kolonne. Klik på “OK” for at gemme dine ændringer.

Du vil nu se en Power Throttling-kolonne her, som giver dig information om hver procesens strømreguleringstilstand. Du kan trække den rundt for at omplacere den, hvis du vil.

Hvis Strømstyring er deaktiveret på dit system, for eksempel, hvis du er på en stationær pc eller en bærbar computer, der er tilsluttet – du vil bare se “Deaktiveret” i denne kolonne for hver applikation.

På en bærbar pc, der kører på batteri, vil du sandsynligvis se nogle applikationer med strømregulering “Aktiveret” og nogle programmer med den “Deaktiveret”.

Vi så dette i aktion med Google Chrome. Da vi havde minimeret Google Chrome i baggrunden, indstillede Windows Power Throttling til “Enabled” for chrome.exe-processerne. Når vi Alt + Tabbed tilbage til Chrome, og det var på vores skærm, indstillede Windows Power Throttling til “Disabled” for det.

Sådan deaktiveres strømgassystem-wide

For at deaktivere power throttling, skal du bare tilslutte din bærbare pc til et stikkontakt. Strømforbrænding vil altid være deaktiveret, mens pc’en er tilsluttet.

Hvis du ikke kan tilslutte lige nu, kan du klikke på batteriikonet i meddelelsesområdet, også kendt som systembakken. Juster strømreglaget for at styre Power Throttling og andre strømforbrugsindstillinger.

Ved “Batteribesparende” eller “Bedre batteri” aktiveres strømspænding. Ved “Bedre ydeevne” vil Power Throttling aktiveres, men vil være mindre aggressiv. Ved “Bedste ydeevne” vil strømstyring blive deaktiveret. Selvfølgelig vil Best Performance-indstillingen øge strømforbruget og sænke batterilevetiden.

Sådan deaktiveres spænding af strøm til en individuel proces

Du kan også fortælle, at Windows skal deaktivere strømgennemstrømning for individuelle processer på dit system. Dette er særligt nyttigt, hvis automatisk detekteringsfunktionen fejler, og du finder Windows-throttling vigtige programmer, eller hvis en bestemt baggrundsproces er vigtig for dig, og du vil have, at den får maksimale CPU-ressourcer.

For at deaktivere Power Throttling til et program, Gå til Indstillinger> System> Batteri. Klik på “Anvendelse af batteri efter app”.

Hvis du ikke ser en “Batteri” skærm her, har din pc ikke et batteri, hvilket betyder, at strømforsyning aldrig bliver brugt.

Vælg det ønskede program at justere her. Hvis en applikation har “Besluttet af Windows” under den, betyder det, at Windows automatisk beslutter, om det skal være spredt eller ej.

Fjern markeringen i “Lad Windows afgøre, hvornår denne app kan køre i baggrunden” og “Reducer arbejdsprogrammet kan gøre, når det er i baggrunden “muligheder her. Power Throttling vil nu blive deaktiveret for den applikation.

Mens vi bruger Google Chrome som et eksempel her, anbefaler vi ikke at deaktivere Power Throttling for det eller en anden proces, medmindre du har en god grund til at gøre det. Denne indstilling vil kun sænke Chrome, når den kører i baggrunden, og det vil ikke have nogen virkning, når du aktivt browser. Resultatet er en forbedret batterilevetid uden nogen ulempe.

Faktisk, hvis Power Throttling fungerer korrekt og aldrig bremser noget nede, når du er bekymret for det, skal du aldrig behøver at finjustere det overhovedet.
