hi Blake, thanks for that
Did the machine you tested have "Modern Standby" turned on? that's the default setting which i don't like
Do you have all power modes available? I do and only if the answer is YES we can do a fair comparison and then i can decide whether or not doing a full reset. so do you have these?:
or you only have Asus Recommended? this notebook by default has Modern Standby enabled, which i don't really like for a variety of reasons so i disabled it.
This is the flag you need to run:
reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power /v PlatformAoAcOverride /t REG_DWORD /d 0
You can just run regedit as admin and delete PlatformAoAcOverride under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power again to revert back. Or just as admin in cmd.exe:
reg delete "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power" /v PlatformAoAcOverride
