    I know it looks totally different. Yours looks like:

    The point I was making is that you should be able to set some form of "user defined" setup.

    @D2 Ultima

    When I apply a power plan in control center it automatically switches in windows asswell

    Entertainment and quiet correspond to balanced in windows.

    Power saving is...power saver

    Max performance is.... self explanatory.

    Most settings that I set for each power plan in windows are applied correctly....processor state is limited

    well, with my machine its a bit different cuz the desktop cpu is already drawing close to 80W undervolted/overclocked, thats already like 30W more than the 4710HQ. the p6xx series should be completely fine with a 180W adapter in almost all scenarios, unless u decide to overclock the crap outta your 980M ;)
    cant give u exact numbers for stock usage, but its definitely in the range of around 200W +/- 15W. with everything overclocked ive gotten 286W peak draw from the wall thus far, still testing though.

    try prema's website (google is your friend "premamod") in the section "important" he has set up downloads for the latest bios/ec versions :)

    Well if you cannot set a power plan in windows with custom settings like I said for that other user to test and have your CPU not be speed-limited, then you all should mention this to Sager and maybe Clevo can update their hotkey software to stop artificially limiting your processor speeds. Who knows? It might really happen.

    Okay here is a follow-up.

    I found two programs that look like yours. Hotkey 8.0.134 and 8.0.150, installed and they do nothing as far as I tried.
    Then there is the program for P651SE that I was using called Hotkey 3. something.

    I made power profiles and all sort of stuff and the program cannot even open (just says something like I'm missing a driver), BUT it still blocks my cpu as soon as I disconnect the adapter.

    Clevo is obviously not known for selling / creating software, but rather for their hardware. I would advise anyone to remove the HotKey programs they do next to nothing and they tamper with the laptop on a near ACPI level of abstraction.
    Let Windows handle it instead!

    This is almost as much as my old gamer rig desktop. It was a Q6600 with a Radeon 4870x2!
    I guess there is no way around the laptop getting quite warm huh? :)

    @-Jinx- Since we don't have the same screen, but it comes from the same company, it doesn't tell if this is done by the laptop or the AUO's own hardware implementation :/
    And it doesn't say if we can fix it somehow either...

    98 celcius is 98°C, 100 is the boiling point.
