I updated my HP OMEN 15-dc1088wm to Windows 11 a month or so ago. I am having a weird problem with the power setting Minimum Processor State: Plugged In. I have it set to 50% and Apply it. However, it constantly reverts to 100% on boot. It never saves the setting. I have the Maximum Processor State: Plugged In set to 95%. This one stays set. (Yes I have it set to 95% to cut 10 degrees off the processor at load. No I don't notice performance issues while gaming. I have been doing this for years.)
So my laptop fights with itself trying to get to 100% while also trying to stay under 95% every time I boot up if I don't remember to go in and reset the minimum processor back to 50%. I have changed to each of the existing plans (balanced, power save, high performance), saved them and rebooted. I have also used the Restore Default Settings for this Plan link on every plan. My Minimum Processor State:Plugged In still goes up to 100% every time I reboot.
I never had this issue on Windows 10.
I started paying attention to it on my Windows 11 tower as well and it doesn't do the same thing. I interpret this as a bug on my laptop but I cannot find anything with a Microsoft/Bing/Google search. Microsoft's response is it might be a BIOS issue and to contact HP Support.
I'm wondering if it's a known bug or if something is just wacky on my laptop.
My response to their suggestions:
* All my PCs are always up to date. I'm a ridiculously **bleep** person regarding that. I've been known to check for updates right after boot up as well as before I shut down. (Windows Updates)
* As stated in the original post I have Reset all power plans to default and tried each one individually. The only setting that gets pushed up to 100% no matter what plan is active is the Minimum Processor State: Plugged In setting.
* Fast Startup is now disabled. No change.
* I have reset the BIOS also to no avail.
