How to save power ( lower the energy bill) when using a desktop/laptop computer

Using Microsoft OS in default setting is not very energy efficient.

It will be consuming & wasting too much power in default settings. So your electricity bill will go up.

Also in laptop it will cause to generate more heat, which the inbuilt fan will not be able to dissipate properly.

You can do these settings to lower the amount of energy spent on CPU.

 

  • Goto Control Panel
  • Open “Power Options
  • Select “Power saver
  • Click “Change plan settings” for the active power plan
