I'm curious if (as I understand that's possible), it is a good idea to do it to prolong battery life? Namely doing it in a laptop with Ryzen 5600h and 45Wh battery
Thanks!

Things you can do:
  • Keep the screen brightness turned down (not a huge impact)
  • Right click on the battery icon and select Windows Mobility Center and select the power saver selection and/or play with the advanced power settings.
  • Go to settings/system/battery, scroll down a bit and examine what is using your battery. Maybe you can close or remove some programs.
Windows will do a pretty good job of managing CPU clocks if you let it.
