There are many optimizations that can be done to the S10-3T, but none are as important as tweaking Lenovo Energy Management. Even if you had 2GB of RAM, fresh install of Windows 7, the 1.86 GHz versions of the S10-3T, and an SSD your system would still run slowly if you don't tweak the Energy Management software.
Energy Management can be found in the taskbar.
Energy Management controls how much work the S10-3T can do to control the power expenditure. It's a good idea to conserve battery life, but it does make performance sluggish.
By default Energy Management has an "auto adjust" feature which tries to adjust depending on the needs, this does not work well and therefore you may notice lags. By tweaking the program you let the CPU run as fast as it needs to, and it makes a big difference.
- Energy Star
- High Performance (the one I modified)
- Power Saver
- Super Energy Saver
Click the button to the right to modify the selected scheme.
- Click on the "System" tab
- Modify the "Maximum CPU Speed" slider under the "battery" section.
- Move the slider to the left to set it on High
Once you have finished tweaking it click the "Apply" and "OK" buttons.
Performance and happiness have now increased!
