|2. Make also sure that LCD Auto Dim is enabled in the BIOS Main menu.
When watching a DVD, dont u want it to be bright so you can actually see what's going on? One of the major power draws of a notebook is the LCD screen and i think this is where you're getting most of your extra power from.
Then who is seriously gonna take their time to go into each screen and carefully downclock your CPU and GPU, then clock em back up after watching the DVD on battery life and we havent even started talking about instability that underclocking can incur.
Isnt tweaking your lappy to those extremes to get maximum battery life for a benchie like that kinda retarted? I mean, it's not like you're really gonna use those settings IRL. IMO, benchmarking that way is like a virtual pissing up a wall contest.
Either way, it's not gonna make your penis any bigger.
Snorre, i suggest you try benching without any tweaks or optimizations and see what you really get as real world performance is what counts, not synthetic benchmarks. Just time it as you actually watch a DVD for enjoyment without having to take ages before hand prepping. It's sometimes embaressing to see a grown man defend his purchase like that with synthetic benchmarks.
