Here is our weekly tech tips video about – A longer lasting battery with efficiency mode

When you’ve got your head down working hard, you probably have many applications running on your laptop. Some of them can be resource hogs. Slowing down your computer and draining your battery.

 You could kill the worst offending applications… but what if you’re still using them? Good news! The latest version of Windows 11 may have the solution.

 Right now testers are trialling a new feature called Efficiency mode.

 Rather than kill an application that’s using a lot of system resources, just switch it to Efficiency mode. This puts it at the bottom of your laptop’s priority list for resources.


Meaning a faster computer. And a battery that lasts longer. Win-win. The feature’s still being tested. If trials go well we can expect to see Efficiency mode later this year.

 If slow devices or rubbish battery life annoy your staff, we’ve got plenty of good ideas to help. Just give us a call on 01423 423068


Thats your tech update, more next week.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
