Not what you think it does

I find the power schemes in laptops misleading, like "maximum battery life". They make me feel that they really increase your battery life, like throttling performance would, but what they really do is only adjust the timers before various parts shut off. This only works if you leave your laptop alone, but if you're actively using it, this won't make a difference.
