The amount of power that your computer consumes is directly proportion to its performance. If you use resource hungry applications like audio and video on your computer, you will see that your battery is drained at a much faster rate. It is due to the reason that the audio and video applications consume greater amount of power than regular typing and browsing applications. Windows 7 operating system comes with preloaded power consumption modes that are designed to reduce battery power consumption. Unfortunately, this can lead to poor performance. You can customize the windows 7 power options to improve overall performance.
If you are experiencing audio dropouts and hanging video applications, it is high time to change the power options with windows 7 operating system. Click on Start and select Control Panel. Go to System and Security and select Power options. You can also open Power Options directly by clicking on the Power Options in the task bar.
Choose High Performance power scheme. Sometimes, this scheme may be hidden and you need to select Show additional plans to choose this scheme. The power saving schemes will usually be set to turn off hard disc and USB settings after a specific idle timeout period. You need to disable both these settings so that your operating system need not wait to turn on the components when data needs to be accessed. You also need to set Processer power management setting to 100% to ensure optimal performance.
