Power management dialog
Using profiles, you can pre-define settings for the power management of your computer. These settings become active when you or the system enable the relevant profile:
- High performance: Favors performance, but may use more energy
- Power saver: Saves energy by reducing the computer's performance and the screen brightness
You can either explicitly activate one of the power management profiles or you can let the system choose by using the Auto option: If the device is plugged in, the profile High performance will be active. If the device is on battery power, the profile Power saver is activated.
To further distinguish between working hours and non-working hours, a total of four profiles are available, provided you have specified your working hours (3).3 If you do not define any working times, the Default profile is always active for Power Saver and High Performance. Any values under Working hours within a profile (6) are then not applied.
The sleep mode corresponds to Suspend to RAM (S3). For further information, see Sleep mode (Suspend) in the Scout guide.
For mobile devices, the System bar shows a battery icon.
