G-key (Fn+F7) feature on Dell G7 7590 (quick switching between Alienware Command Center profiles)

Hi

Has anybody tried enabling the "G-key" (Fn+F7) on a 2019 Dell G5 or G7 (to quickly switch between thermal profiles and Windows power plans) as described at

https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln317311/dell-g5-5590-g7-7590-7790-enables-g-key-feat...

?

If so, how does it work for you?

What I observe is that pressing Fn+F7 switches the hardware thermal profile back and forth between “Optimized” and “Ultra Performance” (as expected), but the Windows power plan remains set to “High Performance” once game-mode has been enabled once (which is a problem)...

i have same issues, FN +F7 KEY does not turn on the preformance mode "boost"

but the only way the fn+f7 key activates supper boost mode is if the program (ACS) is turned on.
I installed the OSD Kits from alienware on the store, and it works now. let me know if it works for you.
