but if you can't live with using a power scheme that works correctly on battery, i would suggest using a program called rmclock that replaces windows power management. just read through the documents that download with it and you should be able to figure out how to set it up. a bonus of rmclock is that if you take the time to do it you can undervolt you cpu making run cooler and consume less power.
Thanks for the reply.
CPU usage is normal, with no programs running it still clocks the CPU at full speed when running on battery.
I've used RMclock before on another amd laptop and tried playing with the power settings. It was a bit unstable for me though, but if I have to go back to using it I will. I know an OS reinstall would fix this, but I just got this laptop last week and really don't want to have to do that just to fix this.
