Change to computer-specific power settings.

This tweak sets the power scheme that will be used for either individual users or system wide for all users.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000
Power settings are combination of hardware and system settings that can help you maximize your computer’s performance or conserve energy. Computer-specific energy consumption can be managed by configuring different power settings.

This tweak allows you to specify the computer-specific power settings so that predefined power management settings can be used. For example, a laptop may consume high energy compared to a desktop.

When attempting to create and save Power schemes in Windows, the schemes may appear to save correctly but not show up the next time the "Power Options Properties" dialog box is opened. Additionally, some default schemes may not show up in the Power schemes list.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry paths listed below. Right-click on the String Value “CurrentPowerPolicy” and modify the data value with one of the following values, as required, at both registry paths:

Power Code
Computer Type

Desktop PC

Laptop Computer
