Default Skype battery Power Mode - 05-06-2010, 01:59 AM

Hi I have a Mini 9, but when using Skype video it only works well on AC power. Is there a way to use it 'battery only" yet keep it on full power, i.e. stop it going into battery saver mode?

You can simply turn off power saver mode in the power options, for windows, these can be accessed from right clicking on the battery/adaptor icon in the system tray.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Thank you, but there is only the choice of "Adjust Power Properties" or "Adjust Power Meter"... I don't see a "turn off" option

There is no "turn off", except in the BIOS (turn off Intel SpeedStep). On XP, I don't know how you can adjust this to prevent the CPU from throttling down on battery power. I know how to do it on Win7.
