This is false, windows can run in high performance while running on batteries. One thing that I've found is a usual culprit for these kinds of things is make sure that your laptop vendor didn't install their own power managment software on it. Make sure all 3rd party power managment items are removed and let windows handle it, windows 7 does a good job with that on it's own.
Its not false , but its not 100% correct either. But it does depend on what you said. And some manufacturers have that built in at a hardware level. For example on my Asus G series laptops. If you pull the plug. It slows down.. alot. On my Sager if you pull the plug same thing happens. And thats without the 3rd party power management software.
So his post isn't incorrect . Just like yours.
