Process Lasso / Re: Power Plan often not doing what it should
« Last post by Globespy on Yesterday at 06:12:04 PM »
Disabling automatic game detection still does not resolve.
What else can be done other than having to keep manually changing the power plan every time I finish playing a game in VR?

tried the Beta and still doing the same thing unfortunately.

Will try the other option you suggested, disabling automatic game detection - however that seems like a backwards step where essentially PL isn't doing what most love about it, and that's automation

Will the Beta be compatible with Win 11?

That doesn't look inappropriate.

An option to limit how many log records are loaded into the listview at startup is now planned, to improve the startup time of the Process Lasso GUI on under-powered systems.

Until available, I suggest simply dealing with the occasional delay when Process Lasso first opens after being restarted.

I'll post here when the new option is available.

What version of Process Lasso is this?

Theorizing, particularly with older versions (e.g. v9), it is possible that on low-powered PCs or devices with slow storage, such a delay could be seen under some circumstances when the log is being initially loaded into the listview. You can disable logging on these devices, and clear the log, to eliminate the startup delay. Assuming this was the cause, you likely exacerbated the condition by opening the LogViewer at the same time.

If it happens again, open Task Manager, Details pane, find ProcessLasso.exe, right-click and 'Create Dump'. Then upload to https://bitsum.com/minidumps .

Thank you

However, when I tried to access the log it came up blank.  It had been using alot of CPU cycles, I thought.

P.S. After a few minutes it has started working, and the logging shows.

Based on your latest log file, I think the Steam VR helper processes are causing confusion since they are errantly auto-detected as games.

This change in v10.3.0.21 beta (now available) is intended to address it, tentatively, with the following change:

Code: [Select]
(21) Core: Exclude any Steam child process running from "common\steamvr" subfolder from Performance Mode automatic game detection
Alternatively, you can disable Automatic Game Detection by unchecking 'Options / Power / Performance Mode / Enable Automatic Detection'. You'd then need to manually mark individual games as Performance Mode processes.

If you try either option, please let me know how it goes.

No. Only PL Pro.

I noticed some strange inconsistencies that may be of interest/provide clues as to why this problem is happening.
I am playing in VR for reference - WMR Reverb G2 (SteamVR)
If I open the native 'WMR Portal' from the Windows start menu (not the Steam version of WMR for SteamVR), the power plan stays on Balanced - note that SteamVR is not open, only WMR Portal.

When I launch 'WMR for SteamVR' from the Steam Client, it opens the 'WMR portal' (Steam version) and with it SteamVR - the power plan changes automatically to Bitsum HP.
NOTE: No game has been launched, only 'WMR Portal for SteamVR' (which opens SteamVR)

I launched and then closed 'WMR for SteamVR' 4 times, one after the other.
The first three times I could see the power plan changing to Bitsum HP and then back again to balanced when the WMR Portal was closed.
However on the 4th try, it remained on Bitsum HP.

From the logs, it seems that on the 2nd attempt, several services were executed that were not on the 1st - 'environmentsapp.exe'
Then on the 3rd try, some new processes executed that were not in the 1st or 2nd tries - 'openvrsettingssux.exe' and 'mixedrealityportal.exe', but 'environmentsapp.exe was there also.
Then on the 4th try none of these processes seen in the first 3 attempts were executed, and the power plan stayed on Bitsum HP when the WMR portal was closed?

Maybe you can see something I can't?
Hope this is helpful, logs attached.

Do you also have ParkControl installed? Its update process could have changed the active power profile, though this would have been a one-time event after each update.
