CPU reduced to Base Clock speed during gaming

CPU has been dropping to base clock speed after booting up from a couple of days not used. The only way I've been able to fix it is to "power reset" the laptop, and lately that has been causing Windows to not boot properly (even had to sys restore, which forced me to redownload all of my apps and games!).

Specs:
GP75 Leopard 10SFK-219US
i7-10750H
32gb RAM
RTX 2070
Dragon Center: Extreme Performance, Fans on Turbo during gaming (CPU temps typically do not exceed 82C; GPU temps typically do not exceed 72C)

Details:
I did try undervolting this laptop before I learned that this specific chipset has been uber locked due to the Plundervolt issue. After learning that, I restored BIOS to factory and removed XTU and Afterburner completely. Laptop worked fine for about a month and a half, but now it seems like if I let the battery drain at all over the weekend (I travel for work, so use my laptop for gaming during the week only), the next time I boot it up the CPU doesn't appear to go into turbo at all. When I launch anything that uses CPU resources, clock speed drops to around 2.6-2.7ghz and won't go any higher.

I learned that I can power reset the laptop and it will jumpstart the CPU, but the last couple of times I did that it caused Windows to not boot properly, forcing a system restore. One of those times I had to redownload all of my apps and games because they were no longer recognized and/or no longer "installed".

Is there a fix for this?

Did you plugin AC adaptor when CPU stuck at 2.6-2.7 ghz?
Check your power plan settings, if you run out of the battery, the power plan may turn to power saver which will limit the cpu clock.
Did you see any error message or blue screen when last time you perform power reset?
Besides, also try to update the latest BIOS and EC.
AC adaptor is plugged in. Bios and EC have been current through this issue.

Power plan is on max performance. All power saving features have been disabled or turned off. I have confirmed this in Task Manager-Details-Show Power Throttling: That column shows it is disabled.

The last time I had this issue (tonight), I performed another EC reset. Then Windows wouldn't boot properly for 3 full attempts and kept wanting me to perform a system restore. No error messages popped up. Only once did I get the blue screen showing system restore option.

I finally rebooted enough times that Windows eventually loaded, but I'm now throttling down to 3.8ghz after about 20 minutes of gaming.

It's not 2.6, but still not operating to specifications: I should be running around 4.2-4.3 ghz all cores.
