    Hello everyone. My SP4 IS ALWAYS in turbo mode even when there is nothing running. It causes my device to heat up and it also causes battery drain. I had just reformatted it 2 days ago and yesterday I got the update to anniversary update and now my device is always at 2.92 ghz. Is there any way to snoop out what is keeping the speed revved up? When I go into task manager the CPU usage is at 4-8% or even less when nothing is running. But the darn CPU won't slow down!

    Thanks in advance guys. I really appreciate it

    Same here, i7 @ 2.19ghz (without charger connected) / 3.27Ghz with charger, at all times.

    Verified that HyperV features were not installed after AU installation.
