I've been bringing my laptop to tutorials and lectures lately and I've noticed sometimes my CPU clocks up from 1GHZ to 3.2 GHZ which cuts my estimated battery life in half, and spins the fan up pretty loud. Luckily, after about 30 seconds or a minute, it goes back to 1GHZ.
Obviously, since it's a gaming laptop I want it at the correct (3.2) clockspeed while plugged in, however, when I'm at lectures or a tutorial, I don't need all that power. It drains my battery and I can't have a battery that only lasts 1.5 hours instead of 3-4.
Does anyone know how I can prevent my CPU from clocking up when a demanding task is taking place, WHILE ONLY running on battery power?
