Is your NVRAM or PRAM corrupted on your Mac?

NVRAM & PRAM corrupted on you Mac

Understanding PRAM? 

To understand PRAM we need to talk about RAM for a minute – Random access memory (RAM) is often confused with hard drive storage space. RAM consist of chips on your logic board that stores active application and processes currently in use by your computer. For example everything you see on your display when you Mac boots up is stored in RAM. Every application you click on like safari, Outlook etc. is stored in RAM. However once you close the application, it leaves the RAM and frees up memory for other application to use. Read More >>>

Is your Laptop running out of battery?

Since most people are working and learning in various corner of the house these days, a wall socket may not always be conveniently available. Fortunately most new laptop are much more efficient than their predecessor. Nowadays, even with a low-end laptop, you can expect to get at least 8 hours of battery life. Manufacturer like Dell or HP, have models that can even give you over 13 hours of uninterrupted work on a single charge. These laptops should easily keep you working through a long cross country flight or multiple back to back classes.

Consideration

As you probably suspect, the battery in your PC won’t last as long as advertised, if your notebook is not configured properly. There are several key factor that can determine how fast your power will drain. For example, the amount of apps open at one time, and the type of work you are doing with it. These factors play a huge roll on how fast your battery will last. Has a general guideline, the more processor intensive your work is, the less power you will have. For example creating a word document will use a lot less power than editing movies or pictures with Photoshop.

Windows 10 power mode

Windows 10 battery settings

Microsoft have made it really easy to adjust your power settings, to get the most out of your laptop or tablet. It has a battery performance slider, which combine all the setting that affect you power use. You can choose between four different modes.

Best Performance -This mode is for people that are willing to trade performance for battery life. In this mode windows won’t stop apps running in the background from consuming a lot of power.

Better Performance - Limits background resource but it prioritize power over efficiency.

Better Battery – it’s usually the default setting on many laptop, and will extend you battery life considerably.

Battery Saver – This option will only appear when you laptop is unplugged. This mode will reduce your screen brightness by at least 30%, and stops a number of Windows features and background applications.

Battery settings on a Mac

the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro on the other hand don’t have a battery slider like its counterpart. However the same settings and options are available in System preferences under Energy saver. You can open it by using the spotlight icon on the top right of your screen and searching for “energy saver”, which should take you strait to it.

What is the best battery setting to use?

Everybody want a long lasting battery, but using battery saver on a permanent basis would not be ideal. This setting disable a number of useful features, and should only be used if your battery is below 20% with no plug in sight. The recommended option would be to use the “Better Battery” setting. It will give you the right balance between longevity and performance.
