Battery saver will turn on automatically when your battery falls below 20% by default.
Display brightness is automatically reduced to 30% by default when using battery saver. You can specify the percentage value to scale brightness to when battery saver is turned on. You can also turn on or off Lower screen brightness when using battery saver.
Battery saver can only be turned on while your PC is running on battery power.
Battery saver is turned off automatically while your PC is plugged in.
