Configure Norton for best battery use

When your computer runs on battery power, it is important that all active software programs consume minimum resource usage. By reducing resource usage, your computer gains longer battery life and becomes more energy efficient.

You can configure a low threshold profile and ensure that all programs consume minimum resource usage. When the resource usage of a program or a process exceeds the low threshold limit, Norton notifies you with a performance alert. You can choose to close the program or the process manually and free the resource.

If the Use Low Resource Profile On Battery Power option in the Administrative Settings window is turned on, Norton automatically changes the threshold profile to low when your computer runs on battery power. By default, this option is turned on.

Symantec recommends that you keep the Use Low Resource Profile On Battery Power option turned on.

Turn the Use Low Resource Profile On Battery Power option on or off

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Administrative Settings.

  3. Under Performance Monitoring, in the Use Low Resource Profile On Battery Power row, move the On/Off switch to Off or On.

  4. Click Apply, and then click Close.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
