Hi Axel,

laptop that is or is not connected to the power supply)?

Intel manual says "software hint to guide the hardware  heuristic of power
management features to favor increasing dynamic performance or  conserve
energy consumption."

So I guess it's just a hint and make sense when the system load is high.
PS: My power-meter didn't show any power consumption difference during idle.
