    Is there a step for step guide disabling turbo mode?

    Turbo mode and Turbo boost are 2 different things.

    So I see many people in this thread use a strange method to install AMD gpu drivers to avoid triggering nvidia gpu on battery. There is actually a very easy way to fix this problem without having to jump through all the hoops.

    All you need to do is open "Graphics Settings" in Windows 10 settings, and choose AMD Radeon Settings Lite from universal apps, and set it to use "Power Saving" gpu. After this, you can open the amd settings app without spinning up the nvidia gpu.

    Another thing you probably want to do is go to the "Background Apps" settings, and disable "Microsoft Photos" from running in the background. Apparently this app sometimes starts itself in background and uses the nvidia gpu (maybe for AI photo tagging).

    A good way to spot undesired gpu activity is to open Nvidia control panel, and enable "Display GPU activity Icon in notification area".

    Hope this helps some people.

    Radeon settings lite never was the problem. Radeon settings of the AMD released 2020 driver was it. You had to use this driver because of the black screen problem but ASUS released an update so that the method you are talking about is not longer needed. Microsoft photos is shown in the activity symbol but is not actually drawing any power.

    The technique works for the full radeon driver too. Just add "C:\Program Files\AMD\CNext\CNext\RadeonSoftware.exe" to the list and choose "Power Saving" for it. You'll need to logout for this to take effect. I'm running the AMD driver right now and there is no Nvidia GPU activity.

    Has anyone received the Windows 2004 update yet? I’m curious to see if Hardware GPU Scheduling along with Nvidia’s 450 drivers has been upping performance at all.

    Question: how (or rather with what app) you can get shortcuts to "home"and "end" buttons?

    There are plenty if tools for that, well known is autohotkey.

    I run 2004 but i will wait for an official driver release,

    So when you open HWinfo for example, the nVidia GPU shows 0.0w being used? That's the true measure. I've tried what you did on the full AMD driver before and it still caused my nVidia GPU to pull about 3w at idle.
