Park Control, a small request
« on: April 19, 2015, 05:43:33 PM »
Can we get park control to automatically "unpark" all the cores on process lasso startup?

For whatever reason, if I unpark my cores, they stay unparked, but until the next restart.

If I unpark my cores, then restart imediately they are parked again.   < not exactly desired
If I unpark my cores, then restart after some time, they are parked again.  < not exactly desired

If I unpark my cores, then restart, they stay unparked.  < the desired effect


So if we could have a checkbox on that program, or on process lasso to automatically do that instead of us going there each and every time we restart windows, that'd be awesome (install and forget it)

The % of cores allowed to be parked is a setting a specific to your power plans, so I suspect the power plan is being changed, causing this behavior. Once you get your power plan behavior and automation correct, it should work like you want without additional effort. With that in mind, perhaps try approaching it with a different perspective?

Yup, it should be your OEM software or some other booster software that keep reset the Power Plans to what's has been set by them.

I do have a program that makes 2 aditional power plans (power 4 gear) I will uninstall it when I get home and share the results.


edit: uninstalling P4G (power 4 gear thing that came with my laptop) didn't help. It still sets 2 cores parked.

Asus?
Check your Event Viewer first, it should showing something about the Power Plans. ;)

For me, it is P4G and also Touchpad driver(yup, Asus coding is bad....) keep changing the Power Plans, and I forced to uninstall P4G while also find another version of Touchpad driver to workaround it.(Asus provided 3 difference version of touchpad driver)

Well, just be aware of what power plan you are in. As each power plan has it's own core parking setting. So maybe they are disallowed from parking in High Performance but allowed to park in Balanced.

Also, is IdleSaver active? It would change the power profile.

There should be no other possibility.

I'm in the bitsum maximum performance power plan (also tried setting all of them to unparked).

Idle saver is not on.


So maybe event viewer, tho I have no idea what to do with it.

And yes, I have a touchpad driver installed

Hmm, that is odd. The only remaining possibly is software dynamically changing the active power plan, perhaps some Energy Conservation software of some sort from the OEM. That's all I can think of.

Just like I said before, check the Event Viewer, it did record any software that touch Power Plans config, and save your time to find out why it happen. ;)

I can not explain what is happening here, but these are simple settings of Windows Power Profiles. So, all ParkControl is doing is changing them.

If these changes are actually not enforced,  despite being in the right power plan, then it's a deeper issue with the OS or hardware.

If any prior manual registry tweaking was done (possibly by other software), it could have left the PC is a corrupted configuration, but I'm just grasping at straws there. I do know of possibilities where registry tweaking causes ParkControl to misreport the park status, which is something I intend to handle - but don't believe that's the issue here.

I don't don't that's what you want to said. ;D

Anyways, yup, the corrupted registry should not be the case here, as it should just change the config back as soon as you changed it. :)

Looking for changes to the active power profile. It's a bit deep for non-techies, I'll let Ben guide you through it best he can. At worst, click till you find logs, then search them for power change events. I don't remember if it is the System log or not, but think so.

Not this, this is about the firmware(as known as BIOS) limiting the CPU frequency because of the temperature.
You may try use Process Monitor, it may record something interesting about this issues.

Just in case, did it change when you boot into Safe Mode? :)

I'll take a look at that.

In safemode they were still unparked, maybe it's something on system startup? Tho I can't exactly tell what :/

Just use a stupid but the most easier ways, disable half of your startup software, if it don't works, half again, until it don't get parked again.
Then you should know which one it is, based on which software you has disabled/enabled.

This is normally used for finding which Firefox add-ons are having issues, when you has a lot of add-ons and nothing shown on the error console. ;)
Quote
Note: If you have a large number of extensions, it may be quicker to enable more than one extension at a time. The method with the fewest number of restarts required is: Enable half the extensions in this list, then restart Firefox and test for the problem. If the problem reoccurs, you know that the faulty extension is one of the ones you just enabled. If the problem does not occur, you know the faulty extension is one of the disabled ones. Repeat the process until the faulty extension is found.
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#w_test-for-faulty-extensions
-----
Just thinking a bit more, you can just disable all startup software, then run it by manually, followed by the command line.
This may not works, but this don't waste too much of your time too. :D

Try the .REG tweak found at the bottom of https://bitsum.com/parkcontrol/

This will cause the parking options to show up in the normal Power Options / Advanced (then click 'Show more' or similar).

Windows has complete control of this, all Lasso or ParkControl do is adjust the settings - so why those settings aren't being applied is limited to them being undone, ignored, or overridden by some other software or driver.

Did those reg tweaks, the added thing for processor parking appeared in the power options, gonna restart.

And they are still parked after a restart :/ (noticed I made a typo here after 3 hours)


This laptop hasn't seen these many restarts since the time when I uninstalled my printer's drivers and other random programs.

FWIW , Use autoruns (by sysinternals ), that program is best for disabling and enabling startup and seeing what gets loaded .

You just uncheck ones you want to disable and re-enable after you find the issue . Does not delete entries .

I used ccleaner to check out startup objects.

As for the settings, well they changed back to 10% in the power plan advanced options, and in the core parking thing.

so that autostart thing... wow so many things in there :/


edit: ok I broke autostart thing, I disabled a bunch of things from the end, restarted, cores were still parked, went into autostart thing again... it broke, it simply doesn't respond anymore. I force killed it a few times, but no luck. What just happened?

Tried that autorunsC.exe , it opens a cmd thing, which works without a problem, however the autoruns.exe simply doesn't work.

Aaaand I just broke my windows. It won't startup anymore. (Posted from my phone)

So...not even safe mode works now. Wonderful utility this autoruns is.



edit: thank god I had a restore point available from since I uninstalled power 4 gear thing.

As for the autoruns utility, never again.

I agree Autoruns is buggy now, after he fixed the bug that don't found the value and just delete the registry.
And now, sometimes I just re-disable items that has been disable(as I has updated them), and it failed to do that.

The most useful tools are Process Monitor and Process Explorer, as it will not break the computer like Autoruns.
I means, they will not changing the registry. ;D
----
Anyways, if you really disabled a lot of thing and it still get parked, then it can be one thing.
Driver...

This will be harder to find, but I think you can just disable most of the hardware now, except you are not using Windows 8+(as it will fall back to WARP after you has disabled Graphic card driver). ;)

I have never had issue with autoruns with startup section (logon ), I do hide MS entree's so only 3rd party show .

With startup, all it does is make new key and stores them there from the regular startup place . If you did have trouble the GUI, just jumping to reg it easy to see what its doing .

Sorry to hear you ran into problems with it , it is well respected tool (been around forever ).

I make sure MS entree's do not show as well. Sorry about that. I should have been little more clear about using autoruns.

Nope, they changed it to a real core-parking.

When it is Windows 7, it just park the Hyper-thread.
When it is Windows 8+, it start parking the whole core, which is the meaning of "core" parking. ;)

There it is then. Some software, somewhere, on your PC is changing the setting back, *or* all your recent changes are being reverted (e.g. system restore). One or the other. The registry is where all these settings are stored, so if it were wiped out by some crazy registry cleaner, but that registry cleaner would have to be real dumb, and I know ccleaner is better than that. I would like to see a HiJackThis type log of the system, see if I see the problematic software.

Right. That will show us what you have installed, etc... because *something* is changing those settings back. My guess is some OEM bundled 'power management' utility or driver. ... or a registry 'reset', as I wrote about.

I'm sorry, I didn't clarify.

Hijackthis is different than normal security software. It creates a log of everything you have installed, even stuff not visible to you. So, it's log, if you can figure out how to use it, would be invaluable. You could post it here for analysis (it has no personal data, just what your PC has installed on it).

Got the log with your updated post ;)

Thanks! Let us comb through it now... be back with you soon.

EDIT: At a cursory glance, I don't see anything problematic, but do see that ASUS OEM software is installed, so it's still a likely candidate.

Is reinstalling Windows an option? You should do this twice a year as a security precaution anyway, and it will help ensure you *are* keeping good backups. You don't want to find out your backup solution doesn't work well when it's too late ;)

Yup, I would check to Asus processes and service , just google it to see what it does if there not anything in program's list .

OP
My guess if this is laptop it some kind of power saver or something depending on plug-in or battery , just a guess there .

Hcontrol =http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/hcontrol/
hcontrol.exe is a utility by Asus which allows the configuration of the keyboard's special keys. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference. We strongly recommend that you to identify hcontrol.exe related errors.

atkosd.exeis a process installed alongside ASUS Motherboards and provides additional configuration options for these devices. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems. We strongly recommend that you to identify atkosd.exe related errors.

Edit:

this link is good overview of Asus utilities under ATK , sadly it really doesn't help with know what it is able to control .

I keep my battery out of my laptop, as for energy saving still no idea, maybe it's the same with all laptops?

No, it's not the same with all laptops, we can assure you of that. You have an anomalous situation here. You've seen it. Something is changing those settings. It's not Lasso, but something.

EDIT: Could apply to all ASUS laptops with their OEM software installed, which is why I would like to know the culprit for sure.

It's possible. That BIOS (actually UEFI) setting would have to be read by an application or driver, to change the actual Windows settings.

Do you have Asus AI suite on that lap top? It will add power profiles to your system, when used for overclocking. Under power options, does it show any asus power profiles?

I don't see that running or Intel's XTU app but there is Intel ICC which is a clock gen for either OC cpu or clocking with GPU, since there no XTU running it must be for Intel's integrated graphic .

Something in there is changing the parking. It might be clock gen.
