Save Processor Power

Your processor polls your USB ports once every millisecond. It keeps doing this, EVEN if you aren't going to attach any USB devices. You can increase the polling interval-essentially by enabling "USB IDLING" - thus allowing some processors to enter power saving mode.

Navigate to:
HLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0000

Create a new DWORD value called IdleEnable and set it to 1 to enable USB Idling, thus increasing the polling interval.

Restart Windows for the change to take effect.

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
