lol what, since when does taskmanager tell you what uses a lot of power? just ignore that because its pretty unlikely its even remotely right

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

It is actually accurate, they are some programs, Chrome used to be ones of them, which prevented CPU to sleep properly to maximize its performance. This is one of the main reason why Chrome was eating your laptop battery life no tomorrow, despite not consuming CPU cycle, and left idle. Another possibility is that Discord might also prevent the SSD/HDD from sleeping for some reason.

 

The Task Manager considers everything that the a running program does to the system to determine its power consumption.

 

Microsoft has added this feature in the Task Manager (before (and still is) it was in Visual Studio), to help developers to stop doing stupid things and have consumer point their poor battery life, no on the software that they use but rather on the manufacture, system model, or Windows.

 

Personally, I suggest you use Discord website instead of their poorly coded software, or use an alternative, better, chatting platform, or you live with it.

 

Also, Windows has a feature to take screenshots.

You should look into that.
