Vista x64 power plan resets to high performance
I've had Vista running for several months, the Power option set to "power
saver" and customized in "advanced" options the way I want my system to
behave when I leave it idle - replicating as closely as possible the way I
had it set in XP. (sadly no power icon in the notification area for quick
override - why did they grey that out for non-laptops ? - please put it back
! - but that's a different point)

This has all been working fine until about a week ago, when I suddenly found
I was in "high performance" unbidden. I set the option back to "power saver"
and continued only to find myself back in "HP" a little while later. Every
time I reset to "PS" the system overrides me back to "HP".

Has anyone else noticed this happening. I can only assume that one of this
week's Windows Updates is responsible.

The workaround, of course, is to set all the "HP" options in the advanced
menu to replicate "PS", but the whole thing makes a complete nonsense of
having different options.

Come to that, if they're going to grey out the power icon for workstation
users, why provide different power plans anyway ? They'd just as well give
you ONE power plan and let you play with the advanced options.
