I have seen some software that can create and switch automatically between power plans, like TuneUp utilities and Xilisoft Video Converter.

How can I create my own custom power plan in Windows 7 Ultimate?

You can: See detailed Microsoft post. Or just go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options and click "Create a power plan". After that set your preferences for your custom plan.

A good answer, but am I correct in that you still have to switch to it manually? I cannot see a way iTunes or anything else can automatically use a Custom Power Plan. – Guy Thomas Jan 20 '13 at 17:13
You can do everything via command prompt: powercfg /? – Ganesh R. Jan 20 '13 at 18:03
