Windows 10: Advanced Power Options under Build 1703 - Where did they go?

    Advanced Power Options under Build 1703 - Where did they go?

    Prior to the Build 1703 "upgrade", my Power Options > Advanced Settings had many more settings, for example, maximum CPA power levels, and graphics utilization. They are gone now, and only items such as "close lid" and "power button", brightness settings, remain. The new "Battery Saver" feature is lame in comparison. Anyone have an answer whether I can still install all of the old Advanced Settings? Battery life just dropped in half. Thanks.

    Have a look in 'Change plan settings' for your currently selected power plan and click its 'Change advanced power settings'. There are a lot of options available there.

    You might be missing power management driver, make sure, you have the latest drivers, from April 5th.

    Thanks for the replies. I will try downloading the drivers and finding the power management driver to see what I can do with it. As for the "advanced settings", most of them disappeared. I had great power plans set up, but with the "Creative" Win10 upgrade last week, it wiped out all of them (as well as wiping out some other stuff I had set up, such as KeyTweak).

    Hello. I installed all of the driver packages (two of them). the "advanced power settings" in the Power Plan settings have not changed at all. How do I otherwise manage CPU power, etc., like I used to do in the "advanced power settings"? Is there a power management utility somewhere else in Win10 build 1703?
