High Performance power plan is Balanced and vice-versa.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just realized a weird thing on my Lenovo x120e laptop. When I set the power plan to High Performance, the cpu clock is always dynamic, but when I set the power plan to Balanced, it's constant max clock speed. Isn't it supposed to be the opposite? I tried monitoring the speed of the CPU with several utilities like brazostweaker and cpu-z. Do you know what the problem is?
Thanks!

Info:
x120e laptop
OS: Windows 7 x64 home premium
CPU: AMD E-350
RAM: 6GB
HDD: 250GB WD Blue Scorpio

Couldn't say for sure.
So, CPU-z shows the CPU pegged at 1.6ghz no matter the load when on "Balanced" profile, and a variable clock speed up to 1.6ghz when using the "High-Performance" Profile? This is running on AC power correct?

You're correct. However, this happens either under AC power or battery. High performance plan is acting like balanced plan whereas balanced plan is acting like high performance plan. Lol I've never seen something like this before...
