powercfg -setactive 381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e

Post by curious »

WinPatrol keeps asking if I want to accept/reject changes to powercfg -setactive 381b4222-f694-41f0-9685-ff5bb260df2e.
Am running Windows 8.1. Do I even need this? If I understand correctly, it has something to do with a battery…

Thank you

That line sets the power scheme to Balanced, but it's not clear to me why it should be executed more than once - it's a 'set and forget' setting...

That's what I had thought. Would it be safe to Disable it in WinPatrol, or should I just accept changes it is requesting? As I say, over the past 2 weeks I have probably received 4 requests to accept/reject changes....

It probably won't hurt to accept it.
