HP Optimized Power Plan on Windows 7

Optimized power plan on Windows 7

In the downloads section on the support pages on http://www.hp.com  for my HP EliteBook 8730w, I did found that HP is offering something called “System Default Settings for Microsoft Windows 7” One thing that this installs is a new power plan called HP Optimized, which actually replaces the default Balanced power plan.

So what differs between the two? I compared them and come to the following differences:
