You cannot enable cores on a 4-core CPU to make it an 8-core CPU. The Core i7-8565U that is in your laptop has 4 cores and 8 threads and that is all it will ever have.

Typically disabling cores will reduce battery life as the remaining cores have to work harder and longer to accomplish the same tasks.

If you want better battery life, start by disabling background tasks
