Why do this?

I've used laptops for years and there are 100+ at the office and never had to do this.

The toshiba power saver feature doesn't (or at least, shouldn't) reduce the voltage supplied to the cpu. Undervolting should give you a benefit, even with the toshiba software, just be carefull. I suggest using a utility like prime95 to push cpu to the limit while undervolting to make sure its stable, and then running it for a few hours to test stability. When done right, undervolting can lead to longer battery life and a cooler running cpu.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
