I want to be able to substantially throttle down the CPU on my desktop, which due to space constraints is in our bedroom and the wife is suspending it each night because of the fan noise.
I've tried playing with all the power options, including Passive vs Active mode, Min/Max CPU, ensuring power management is enabled, etc., but nothing makes the CPU dip at all (I'm watching it with Resource Monitor and CPU-Z).
Has anyone seen this before and/or have some idea of how to get it to work as I want?
UPDATE: as a follow up, my ultimate settings would be: throttle the CPU substantially at all times except during the day if a user is logged in and actively interacting with the desktop. Is this possible in Windows? I figure looking at the Task Scheduler to change Power Plans might be the best I can do.
