"Power Control is not enabled in BIOS" on HP EliteBook x360

HP EliteBook x360 1040 G6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello HP Community:


I have a new HP ElitebBook x360 1040 G6 (bought in May-20) which doesn't have the battery life I was expecting (I believe it is advertised to be >8 hrs, but not near that).  I noticed an "HP Power Manager" application - but when I launch it, I get a message "Power Control is not enabled in BIOS".  Can someone help me understand what I need to do to enable it?  Or is there something else I can do to get battery life to something closer to what is advertised?


Note: I have turned off HP SureClick, as I find the protection too difficult to work with, i.e. too many pop up messages when going to sites, downloading files/apps.  Note that the laptop is pretty clean - I have downloaded relatively few applications, don't download videos, etc.


Cheers, Roger
