    Who has more priority - TS or windows speedshift? If i have EPP = 0, would windows correct it if i'm on battery.

    Also, it's impossible to have speedshift ON on 1st profile, and OFF on the 2nd profile.

    Disable speedstep in TS and check off speed shift EPP for TS to manage EPP values. I usually set 80 on AC and 180 on battery.

    No. Its fine to extend battery life by limiting cpu to 2.1-2.3GHz at EPP 180. If its laggy, try 165.

    The actual frequencies probably vary from one CPU model to the next. Some fine tuning is usually required. But also note, frequency != power consumption these days.

    Yep you're right. On SST 0 my CPU consume 0.6-1W at 31x-34x. If SST is 180 the cpu idles at 8x to 12x and power consumption drops from 0.6 to 0.1-0.3W increasing battery life from 8 hrs to 10-11 hrs on single charge.

    @Vasudev lol, 8 hrs on single charge, do you have any programs installed at all? Or do you use powersave mode all the time? I barely push 3 hours from my machine.
