Energy Menu (⚡⧂)

Contains various energy consumption related functions.

Configs

  • Energy Performance (Default: False)
      If enabled, sets your computer's energy setting to the default setting for maximum performance. Usually this setting will suggest that the processor run at 100% speed all of the time. In my experience, it will still use reduced energy under reduced loads, but is very aggressive at anticipating load to avoid noticeable speed reductions. This power setting will likely have other side effects, such as changing sleep settings and monitor timeout settings, which you can check out in the operating system's energy menu.
  • Energy Balanced (Default: False)
      If enabled, sets your computer's energy setting to the default setting for balanced energy savings. Usually this setting will allow the processor to slow down and save energy during low load, but also reach max speed during high load. This power setting will likely have other side effects, such as changing sleep settings and monitor timeout settings, which you can check out in the operating system's energy menu.
  • Energy Max Savings (Default: False)
      If enabled, sets your computer's energy setting to the default setting for maximum energy savings. Usually this setting will limit the maximum speed of the processor, so your computer should feel slower while this is enabled. On the upside, it can increase battery life, reduce energy costs, and put less stress on the processor. Also, some computers have inadequate cooling solutions for their processors, which may result in thermal throttling. Preemptively slowing down the processor can avoid this and actually feel smoother. This power setting will likely have other side effects, such as changing sleep settings and monitor timeout settings, which you can check out in the operating system's energy menu.
  • Chill Boost Enabled (Default: False)
      Enabled Chill Boost feature, which reduces the CPU power state in specific circumstances to improve performance.
