Reduce CPU Power Consumption

When you are using the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC2) on a mobile device in battery mode, you might want to reduce power consumption. One major power consumer is your CPU.

You can easily gain some control over the power consumption of your CPU using the tray icon (CPU Power Plan) on your taskbar.

If the tray icon is not displayed, open the IGEL Setup, go to System > Power Options > System and activate Tray Icon.

To change the CPU power settings:

  1. Click on .
  2. Select the appropriate option. High Performance gives you the highest performance, but also the highest CPU power consumption, Power Saver results in lowest performance and lowest CPU power consumption. The other options are in between.

    For further information about the power plan settings, see the system chapter in the manual.
