    Do you find that the "Balanced" or the "Power Saver" setting works best for you in terms of getting the best overall battery life from Your Surface Pro 2 and why?

    This may just be a quirk in my machine or setup (or maybe even a bug), but I get better battery life from Balanced than I do Power Saver; roughly an hour and a half more. Its weird because my power saver profile settings are all set to maximize power savings, and the CPU is throttled to 80%.

    The percentage that you set the CPU is rounded to a power state it support.
    Set it the min and max to 0%. Power Saving should give you better battery life when doing office level work.
