Whenever I try to play a game on battery as opposed to AC power, I suffer a considerable slowdown in gaming performance. I've tried messing with power options and took a look in the BIOs, but I haven't found anything to explain this.
My last computer (an Ibuypower Battalion with Core2Duo and Vista) did not have this problem--I had the same game performance on and off the power supply.
If anyone could tell me a way to fix this I would greatly appreciate it. I'm sure there must be something I could disable that is causing this...
