Here’s some more tips you may find interesting.

S4 Hibernate sleep mode
Nowadays, some laptops are equipped with modern standby, where some of the components remain at its lowest power consumption mode.
In other words, it works just like when you turn your smartphone’s screen off, the CPU and other necessary component are still working, but consume way less power.
If you would like to preserve your working state without shutting down your laptop while also reserving as much battery life as possible, try the S4 hibernate sleep mode.

S4 sleep mode preserves your working state data to the hard disk, all other components are suspended, that’s why it saves the most power.
By default, the hibernate option is disabled and not shown in the power menu. You would have to manually enable it.

Keeping your charge between 30-80% will extend the battery life.

is it normal that my battery always stops at 98% when plug-in?
the battery only allows charging once it drops below 90% so 89% is the highest it allows it to charge from and should then charge to 100%.

I've done all of this and still only get about 2 hours of battery life? The only thing I cannot do is lower the refresh rate from 144hz. I have a Crosshair 15 A11UCK-264US not sure if something is wrong or if this is normal? Just got it about 2 weeks ago.
