Power Throttling on Windows 10 - I don't get it. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    what do you think of the feature "Power Throttling" on Windows 10?

    There are many good ways to save energy, but reducing the power only because the window of an app is not in the foreground or activated does not seem to make any sense to me.

    I know, it can be easily deactivated (from the user or the software itself), but why is something like this active at all?

    The first time I noticed it, was when I received extreme differences in results in prime95, just because the window was not activated/in the front.
    Yes I know, not practical at all, but such a behavior is kind of pointless.

    What do you think?
    Do you switch it off? 

    Greetings,
    Martin
