    My ASUS Zephyrus M laptop power plan keeps changing from Balanced to High Performance. I'll have to check this when I am on it.

    I thought it must have been the Windows 10 v2004 update. Maybe not.
    I honestly think that somehow Windows 10 v2004 caused a conflict with Bitdefender. This never happened until I updated Windows 10 to v2004, recently, and honestly, I'd never even touched the Profiles settings in Bitdefender, so I assume they were always set to automatically adjust the profile based on the power needs of what I was doing at that point in time. Unfortunately, I don't really have any way of telling. I mean, I could probably rollback the update, maybe...I'm not sure how that would work, anyways, then test it. That kind of seems like too much work, though, considering it seems like I got it working the way I want it to, now, so I'm not going to touch it. Maybe someone else who hasn't upgraded yet to Windows 10 v2004, can confirm, before and after?

    I think the profiles are OFF by default, but I'm not sure. It might be that I automatically turn them off.
    This is my 7th year running BDIS, and I don't really even pay attention anymore. I always set it up the same way.

    A while back, my Power Plans also started getting changed for no obvious reason. But in my case, it had nothing to do with Windows. It turned out that a third-party application, ASUS AiSuite, was resetting the power plans to be consistent with the power settings it had created for my CPU. I found this out by running Event Viewer and noting when the power plan was getting reset.

    If you have AiSuite or any other third-party app that tries to optimize performance on your PC, it may be resetting the power plans itself.
    I had the same problem, and it turned out to be AI suite. I've been pulling my hair out for days over this, and I created this account just to verify this solution and to thank you.

    I never realized until just now, when I thought it would be a good idea, that you can click on the arrow right after, in this case Eksy61 said:, you go to the quoted post. That is really slick. Really nice when the quote is a page or more back.

    May seem obvious to many of you but it wasn't to me until just now.

    I did resolve the issue, not sure if I explicitly said so or not. I ended up uninstalling Bitdefender completely, I had to manually delete some files that I found by just searching my computer under "Bitdefender", then re-installed.

    You're very welcome.

    If you're unable to adjust AI Suite's power settings to stop resetting your power plan, you can create a scheduled task (in Task Scheduler) that will run a batch file to reset the policy scheme after AiSuite has meddled with it.
    Alternatively, you can use some other fan control application like Argus Monitor, and stop using AiSuite altogether.

    I believe disabling the EPU tool in the AiSuite should do the trick
