What is "High Performance Mode"
(04-06-2020, 05:49 PM)Scott_Graham Wrote: It's your computer's power plan.  Jamkazam wants you to select the high performance plan.  I found on my laptop running windows 10 that the high performance plan wasn't listed.  I had to choose create "custom plan", and then, high performance was available.  I'm honestly not sure how critical this is.  It basically keeps things from going to sleep, but if you're actively using your computer, I wouldn't expect things to be sleeping.  You may want to toggle this power plan off and on depending upon whether you're actively using jamkazam.  I *want* peripherals to sleep if I'm not using my laptop (or desktop for that matter). 


Just in case this wasn't clear, do the following:

1) Bring up the Windows Control Panel

2)  Click on "Hardware and Sound"

3)  Click on "Power options"

4)  If you're lucky, you'll see a choice of "High Performance Plan".  Select it, and you're done.

5) If you are like my machine, it wasn't there - click on "Create custom plan".  Then, you'll see a choice for the high performance plan.  Select it and you're done.  However, you may want to remember how you did this, and what the prior plan was.  I would prefer NOT to have high performance plan selected for general use, particularly if you're running on a laptop and use it on battery power frequently.  That's just going to waste your battery if you're not running Jamkazam.
