OMEN by HP 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop 16-n0000 (5B1T6AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

I recently updated all my drivers, bios etc. Now my laptop does seem to have a battery saver mode or high performance mode. I've tried restoring them with CMD : powercfg .. etc all those operation and they appear - BUT the performance is still not the same as before: The seem to be superficial - its like my PC is stuck on Balance power mode regardless of what i choose.

 

I used to get 9-10hrs usage on the battery now the most i'm getting is just over 4hrs. How do I fix this. The only reason i chose this gaming laptop because of the awesome battery life, now its gone and i cant seem to restore it. This all happened after updating everything. Help please
