    Bump because I just tried this after spending 10 minutes looking for this thread. Anyone else want to take a crack at this too?

    I don't think this will work for the fact that I've tried several times to lower my Max CPU while on battery to like 75% but no matter what I do, it always gets reset to 100%. I've even tried creating custom power profiles but they get reset too.

    I think this *could* work if the settings would stick.

    I don't have any problems changing my processor performance settings and the only situation I've read about where the changes reset is if Hyper-V is enabled. If you don't have that enabled then its possible some other software is preventing the settings being applied. Or it could be a corrupt OS install.
