I was in safe mode and I noticed in control panel advanced power settings, the one where you select when to sleep and turn off display and also what the power buttons and lid close does, i changed the cooling system to active, meaning my fan speeds up before processor slows down, but also i noticed a setting for min and max processor speed, minimum was set to 5% and max was at 100%, im assuming that minimum was the slowest allowable speed for any computing that the processor does, so i changed it to 20% thinking that it would speed things up a little bit, ive got an intel i7 with 8 2ghz cores so i didnt think i would be taxing it too much to turn the minimum up to 20%. I then restarted and looked for any differences, I noticed that desktop loaded quicker, not by a significant amount though. I just wanted to know if I shouldnt play with those settings and if min processor speed means something different that what im thinking??? and whether or not I should change it back???
