In the Windows 11 operating system, power mode is a system control function that allows users to manage the power usage and performance of the device. The operating system, by default, uses the “Balanced” mode that optimizes the performance and battery life of the device. You can change the performance setting of your device to “Best power efficiency” to prolong battery life or “Best performance” to enhance device performance at the cost of extra power usage.
