    hi, i m a new happy pro 3 user. however, i have some questions here:
    1) is it possible for me to create a power saving plan? (limit max cpu usage etc) i can do that on my sony vaio pro but i couldnt do it the same way here
    2) how should i charge it to maintain a healthy battery life?

    Welcome aboard. Your Sony Vaio does not have connected standby. Big difference. To preserve battery Microsoft has restricted users from tweaking the power plans.

    Still, if you want to do that you can disable connected standby by applying this registry change.

    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\CsEnabled (1->0)

    Restart after this change.

    Once "inking" gets into your veins you never will be able to live without it.
