    Windows 8.1 Custom Power Plan keeps Resetting CPU Usage


    I have an Asus K55N-DB81 running windows 8.1 and I decided to create a custom power plan. So I created one and went to "Advanced Power Settings" Option and then went to the Processor Power Management to change the Minimum CPU usage to 1% and the Maximum to 50%, I click Apply and Ok and X'ed out. I Closed the Lid, Came back to my computer and I checked to see if my CPU settings Changed back to 100% Minimum and 100% Maximum which it DID. I keep Changing it back but it keeps resetting itself . Does anyone have a Solution?? Thanks

    Try settings copied from a plan you know works. Then tweak in small increments. 1% minimum sounds rather radical.

As title suggests, what power plan do you normally use on Windows 8? Do you switch between power plans depending on the situation at hand? I run Balanced most of the time, since my AMD CPU has Cool'N'Quiet technology, then switch over to High Performance when gaming.
