    i want to check if the active Cooling policy is set to active or passive on "plugged in"

  • Here's what works for me on my Windows 7 machine.  I believe that the options / syntax of powercfg are slightly different in Windows 8, though:

    powercfg /query scheme_current sub_processor

    This shows three different CPU-related settings, one of which is the cooling policy.
