    Default Powercfg Command-Line Options in Windows 10/8/7

    The Powercfg.exe tool is installed with Windows. You can use the Powercfg.exe tool to control power settings and configure computers to default to Hibernate or Standby modes.

    The following command-line options are available for Powercfg:

    powercfg [-l] [-q ] [-x] [-changename] [-duplicatescheme] [-d] [-deletesetting] [-setactive] [-getactivescheme] [-setacvalueindex] [-setdcvalueindex] [-h] [-a] [-devicequery] [-deviceenablewake] [-devicedisablewake] [-import] [-export] [-lastwake] [-?] [-aliases] [-setsecuritydescriptor] [-getsecuritydescriptor]

    Yep!

    Already covered here:

    AND

    Q7: My computer is running slow on the “Power saver” power plan, and the battery is draining faster than I expect. What can I do? Can I diagnose what is occurring?

    A7: To diagnose the problem, create a power report. To do this, follow these steps:
    Click Start.

    * In the Search programs and files box, Type cmd.
    * Right-click CMD, and then click Run as administrator.
    * At the command prompt, type powercfg -Energy -output c:\temp\energy.html, and then press ENTER.
    * In the Temp folder, open the Energy-report.html file. This report uses a 60-second run. However, the report time is configurable.
