OMEN 15.6 inch Gaming Laptop PC 15 (2Y3L7AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

Okay, I've noticed an extremely confusing thing - in high-performance mode the battery is draining slowly even if plugged into the wall. 

I've been running the Doom: Eternal for a couple of hours and noticed that the battery indicator has changed from "charged" to "almost charged". I thought that it could be a mistake, opened the power&battery tab, unplugged and plugged the ac adapter again, and yep - battery was slowly draining by 1 percent per ~5-8 minutes. Not cool. Switching into the balanced mode helped to stay on 72% level, but come on! I was planning to do the overnight renders on this laptop, isn't the AC adapter powerful enough to drive the laptop? Do I have to buy another one? Is it an oversight or it's has been made this way?

Got this laptop a week ago, everything is brand-new and stock. 

What should I do?
