    Power Plan changes each time on turn computer on


    I have recently bought a new Asus machine running Windows 8.1.

    I have set my own custom plan for power settings in the control panel and have that selected. However when I turn the computer off then later turn it back on, the power plan has changed. It seems to do this every time. But it's usually one of the ones preset by Asus (Power4Gear).

    Any ideas and help would be really appreciated!
    Cheers

    maybe a program with automatic startup is changing it.. what does it always change back to??
    **EDIT** oh i guess you answered that.. yes exactly see, its a program switching it for you.. so start looking into your startup and services to see what is set to automatically start..

    do this by command prompt and then typing "msconfig" and then "services.msc" and then press "Ctrl, Shift, and ESC" and look at (startup tab)

    *old* for example i have samsung magician installed on my machine and that created a samsung power profile and luckily it hasn't so far, but it could somehow set itself to always use that power plan if i wasn't careful in choosing my settings correctly when i installed it.. etc..

    It varies but it's either "Power4Gear Maximum Performance" or "Power4Gear Power Savings"
    I checked my start up programs and can't see anything that would be affecting this.
