Dell Power Manager stalls and freezes

5580 and 5590 laptops. Dell Power Manager 3.1 from Windows Store. If corp policy has windows firewall whitelisting certain applications (default block), Dell Power Manager UI freezes a long time before being usable. There should be zero need for the Dell Power Manager to require internet access to control local power settings. Any workarounds? (Best hope is that it gets fixed. Or 2.x style deployable/installable .exe directly from Dell, no dependency on Windows Store, no internet connections is brought back)
