So I’ve noticed when ever I reboot my Windows 10 Nitro 5 the Nitrosense changes my power plan to maximum performance. I keep switching it back and they only way to stop it is to uninstall Nitrosense. Anyone have a solution for this?

    Are you talking about the AC tab or Battery tabs? My AC tab is always set on High Performance, when on AC there's no point in anything else but if it"s doing it on the Battery tab then that's a problem

    It’s changing the AC tab to high performance. The battery tab is balanced but the AC tab keeps changing to performance when I set it on balanced. Is this normal? I don’t understand why it would automatically change.

    Your AC tab should be on High Performance, why would you want it on any less?  Acer series gaming laptops are designed to give gaming performance on High Performance and that is why it resets to it, it is the NORMAL setting for the AC tab and has nothing to do with your battery. If you are on AC power and you are on less than the High Performance setting you are wasting your laptops potential and your CPU will be throttled back. High Performance is the DEFAULT setting and that is why it reverts back. Hope this helps, click YES if I answered your question

    Make sure you leave it on that setting or it's like buying a Ferrari and driving it at 30 mph lol

    Hello, I am interested in changing the settings of nitrosense as well. I do not want the laptop to ever enter high performance mode without telling me. I hate that the settings change this without my permission. Is there a way to force nitrosense to always keep it on a specific setting?

    Hello, currently, I'm facing this issue in which the power plan automatically shifts to high performance whenever I do the restart. Even though, I switched to balanced mode already before I shut down. Are there any solutions? 
    P.S: I'm running on battery, no AC power plug-in. Thanks in advance.

    No, it's not okay. When the Wi-Fi is at Maximum Performance it does not work properly, it is cut off almost always.

    A very valid reason is silcence and extended use on battery!
    For browsing on the couch 50% is fine and my Nitro 5 shuts the fans down completely.

    With a Ferrari you don't drive 300km/h all the time... Only when you want and need it.
