Power plan should automatically switch to lower power consumption plan when laptop is running on battery
When using laptop w/o power connected I keep forgetting to manally change power plan and the batter runs down too fast
Have the power plan automatically switch to balanced or power saver plan - user choice - when power cable is unplugged and laptop is running on battery. Also automatically return to high performance plan when power cable (re)connected.
Ok- based on comments let me suggest a better/different solution.
The defualt "on battery" settings for the High Performance power plan are pretty much exactly the same as the on "plugged in" settings which does not seem logical to me as when I am on battery I want to default to saving the battery not high performance.
So I sugest the default settings for all of the "on battery" plans ought to be optomized for battery life and then the user can tweak them to what they want.
