Inspiron 7490: Dell Power Manager automatically switches to Ultra Performance

Anybody experiencing the same problem?  I always change it to optimized which has been the default setting and every once in a while I am receiving notifications that it switched to ultra performance.

Is there a way to prevent this behavior? Thanks

Hello. Thank you for the reply, however I am referring to the Dell Power Manager Settings which is independent of the Windows Power Settings. Please see screenshot below wherein my Windows Power Plan is set to Balanced.

Hi,

Did you find a solution to this, ultra performance is just not necessary for me, it makes the fans kick into maximum whilst i'm just browsing...
