I have Windows 8.1 with an Asus H87M-Plus motherboard. In the bottom-right hand corner of the screen there is a tab that if you click on it will bring up some power saving options (Auto Mode, High Performance Mode, Power Saving Mode, Away Mode). When it hides itself it is difficult to see. However, the computer is connected to a large LCD and if I'm playing a video I can see a tiny little white spot in the corner.

I think these tabs are coming from Asus AI Suite 3 as the icons look the same as when I go to the EPU tab in that utility. However, I see no options or settings to remove them in the utility. Maybe somewhere in the bios?

I spent 20 minutes waiting for tech support before I gave up.

Why not just uninstall all the Asus bloatware via Add/Remove programs? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 13 at 17:08
    
I was thinking about that. Probably a good idea. Was hoping there would be a solution without doing that. –  John Mar 13 at 17:17

Meh, I do it out of habit. IME 99% of what OEM's bloat Windows up with is just re-skinned utilities that Windows already provides (ie: Power Saving profile subsystem). To that end, perhaps check out pcdecrapifier.com :) –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 13 at 17:20
    
I'll give it a go. Thanks. –  John Mar 13 at 17:21
    
Yeah, it was just one part of the Suite that was causing it. I was able to remove just that part and keep the rest. –  John Mar 13 at 17:28

Right click the AI Suite III tray icon (probably hidden) and deselect "ASUS mini bar". Voila! It will fade away slowly. Such a nice way to die! Stupid annoying widget"
