I have recently purchase the HP OMEN (last week) and so far I love it!!
But I have this questin, I just installed this simulation program called LSDYNA. When I launch it for some reason it seems as my power plan changes but without changing the plan i am on if that makes sense. Before opening the program i am on Hp recommended and after it is opened i am still technically on Hp recommended but the brightness of my screen increases to max level (100%) and more annoyingly the windows update center is turned off so no automatic update whie I am using the program.
I think I found where the problem emanated from. I had the total bitdefender2015 installed on the laptop and this software comes along with a user profile that allows itself to control a multitude of your computer behavior such power management. When LSDYNA is launched the program switches to the gaming user profile and all its settings.
