Microsoft adds “Power Throttling” feature to manage power consumption

We all know about the battery consumption issues we face due to the several applications functioning in the background while working on a laptop. But now, Microsoft is claiming to have a solution for it. It has added the “Power Throttling” feature in the recent Microsoft Windows 10 Preview Build 16176. It is claimed to make the CPU of Windows 10 computers toggle automatically to the energy-efficient operating mode and thus save up to 11% of power consumption by the CPU. The only requirement for this feature to function is that that device should be operating on the Intel 6th generation and above Core processors. Thus, only Kaby Lake and Skylake processors can benefit from this feature at present.

Microsoft has developed an advanced detection system to identify which apps are actively used by the user and also which aren’t such that the user experience is not interrupted by the throttling. Music players, foreground applications, and apps that do significant work won’t be influenced by throttling as per the company. The company has also asked the user of the latest version to give feedback if the detection system is not working efficiently.

Apart from this, the company is also permitting the users to select how much they want their desktop experience to be influenced by the Power Throttling feature. The user can utilize the Power Slider to opt for Best Performance, Recommended, and Battery Saver modes. Besides, the users can select the Battery Saver or Recommended mode and remove applications from the system that they don’t wish to be throttled. To do this, you need to follow the below steps.

  • Select the Battery Setting, SettingsàSystemà
  • Select the “Battery Usage by App” option.
  • Choose the app.
  • Switch the “Managed by Windows” to “Off.”
  • Untick the “Reduce work app does when in background” checkbox.

Further, the company also said that few benchmarks can be throttled by the system; it would better to run by disabling the Power Throttling or you can even plug the laptops as the system doesn’t apply when laptops are plugged in.

Do you think this system will efficiently manage the power consumption?

What? Petrol, diesel pumps closed on Sundays from May?

Most of us schedule the work of “filling our vehicle’s petrol tank full” on weekends. But, you may have to reschedule this as diesel and petrol retailers all over India are in plans to take a holiday on Sundays starting May 10. Furthermore, they may also make a decision to work only for 8 to 9 hours on weekdays, according to various media reports.

Representatives from different states attended The Consortium of Indian Petroleum Dealers (CIPD) meeting where it has announced to keep fuel pumps close on Sundays in case the central government fails to fulfill their demand of hike in dealer’s commission.

In January, petrol pump owners were on strike and had backed off when public oil companies guaranteed them to provide revised commission rates. However, until now no firm decision is taken on this matter.

As per the Indian Oil Corporation circular, as of April 1, currently the dealer commission rate on petrol is Rs 2.56/litre and that on diesel the commission rate is Rs 1.65/litre.

The decision of “no purchase” of diesel or petrol on May 10 and further starting May 14, on Sundays petrol pumps will remain closed was made.

Though CIPD is for a settling down the protest, the All India Petroleum Dealers’ Association has made a decision to keep a foot distance from them.

However, Ajay Bansal, President of AIPDA told Business Standard, commented, “This will build panicky situation. The association that decided to follow this has a presence in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka only. We are not in support of this decision, though we too demand the same—increase in dealer’s commission”.

Petroleum Dealers’ Association further mentioned that dealers were abiding with the message of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of reducing fuel costs per day.

Overall, India has 56,190 retail marketers, of which, 52,604 are public-owned oil companies such as Hindustan Petroleum, Indian Oil Corporation, and Bharat Petroleum. Moreover, the three PSUs control 95% of the total market.

In 2010, India increased it control on diesel price and that on petrol price in 2014, leaving them to be controlled by market forces.
