Suggestion: Auto performance switch option on plug/unplug (laptops)

It would be a great feature for everyone concerned about battery life on laptops

Example:
Option: auto switch profiles on battery plug/unplug (yes/no) (main switch)
Profile on battery: <choose> me: battery life
Profile on power supply: <choose> me: balanced or performance

Would save headaches when you forget to switch and run out of power when you need it.
I prefer built-in options rather than scripting my own solutions on the plug/unplug event -
also better for new users.

Regards,
K

I like that idea. It would be one of those small automation things that make life easier.

I also think it could be a decider for non tech-savy users with semi/older laptops who want to get the best of their devices instead of throwing them out. (Like all underpowered subnotebooks with like 2GB of RAM, running Windows 10 after a forced upgrade and the last october patching...)
Battery life is key for those, and would be a huge prestige boost in that use case, I think.

This feature's been planned, and actually implemented, but is awaiting an approved design.
