I’ve got a computer program which runs much more slowly for me than it does for others with systems similar to my own.
Is it possible (well, anything’s possible, so is it plausibly possible) that this is happening because my laptop’s powersaving feature–wherein it slows the processor down to about half speed when it is relatively idle–is failing to deactivate when I run this program?
To test this, I would need to somehow manually deactivate the feature. I know probably every model has a different way to deactivate the feature, if any. Noodling around in the device manager has turned up nothing, but does anyone have any leads as to where I might want to look to find a way to deactivate the feature?
I’m running Windows XP, on a Compaq machine.
