Welcome to out HP User Forum!
Please clarify what you mean by "TGP" - 'Top Game Performance', 'Total Grade Points', 'Total Graphics Power' ('Theft of Government Property'), etc.?
-I thought I was reasonably versed in gaming lingo, but then again, perhaps not.

Greetings from the West Coast!
Found the definition for TGP here:
TGP is the acronym in English for " Total Graphics Power ", or "total graphic consumption" if we translate it into Spanish. It is, in fact, the power consumption that the GPU of the graphics card has, and it comes to replace the way in which we defined until now the TDP.

Likewise, greetings from the Rockies.
Appreciate your feedback!
So, with this in mind, my response to @IJustWant2Know1 would be: it depends.
Namely, what do you have onboard such as what graphics card, processor, drive(s), and RAM, specifically.
According to: OMEN by HP Laptop 16t-b100, there are lots of graphics cards (and processor) configurations possible for this gaming laptop. From a GTX 1650 all the way to an RTX 3070 Ti.

All right, let's use this configuration for a ballpark TGP:
Power consumption of the RTX 3060 mobile: max 115 Watt (listed as 60 - 115 watt TGP), but average TDP is set at 80 watt.
As a rule of thumb, let's say 3 watts for every 8GB = 2 x 3 = 6 watt.
Alder Lake mobile i7-12700H processor uses 115 watt at max turbo performance. However, maximum Turbo Power is only used during short durations, is configurable by system vendor and is system specific. Meaning, HP likely has it set lower than 115 watt. More realistically for 'average' use, base power of this processor is 45 watt.
Ballpark, a quality 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD uses 6 watt.
My guesstimation of the average TGP (laptop in full use) is probably close to something like this: 80 + 6 + 45 + 6 = 137 watt TDP -not counting miscellaneous power usage, which would bring it close to 150 watt, which, not incidentally, is also the rating of its "Smart AC power adapter".
Point is, in my opinion HP has balanced this laptop's power usage and power supply nicely, and whatever the actual TGP may be, there is little to worry about it.
Hope this response is what you thought or expected.
