Windows 10 Power Options When Using A Laptop

I discovered that Windows 10's Power Options can have a negative impact on a laptop if creating and using a "High Performance" profile.

For example I noticed with USB 3.0 external/portable SSDs a small yet significant enough increase in performance and speed of 40-50 MB/s (which I'll gladly take) when I switched back to using the Balanced profile.

Just noticed even my internal boot Micron M.2 SSD is faster with big sequential writes by +57.5 MB/s, and small random writes by +19.7 MB/s according to CrystalDiskMark.
