Right now the maximimun processor state is 100 because i set it. when i restart it changes to 50% causing it to be slow during startup. And for fixes ive tried a few but i dont have things like intel rapid storage technology etc.

Check to see if you have Lenovo Software installed on the machine that may be causing that. Most OEM include things like that that may be changing values in the background.

Another place to check is in the actual Windows settings, make sure there isn't anything there that might be overriding the direct power plan itself.

Hey John, thanks for replying. I snooped around some windows processes and noticed that when I tried to disable my antivirus services it wouldn't disable. So I went into safe mode and disabled them. And sure enough, the problem was fixed.

Well, now you have an idea of the cause.

I suspect that your AV program / suite is *aggressively* monitoring your Windows settings / particular registry hives that it keeps reverting because it thinks someone is messing with them. So, the basic idea is to make your changes and then re-enable the AV services (if they are necessary / required) and let the new changes take hold (of course, this assumes that it hasn't saved the previous setup and will continue to revert).

Also, you'll want to verify that your AV program / suite is, in fact, a legitimate one - because that is some extremely aggressive monitoring there. And if it is legit, you'll also want to verify what it is monitoring, how it is monitoring it, and how you can make the canges you want in the future without it forcing reversions.

Yes I was using the Bitdefender AV and I went through some posts and multiple people were facing these issues for years. I have now switched antiviruses and am using Kaspersky now. Till now I am not facing any issues. Also when I was in safe mode I was able to see more power plans such as ultimate performance. I was also able to see way more advanced power options as well. but I do not see any of these settings on a normal boot.

Ultimate is actually a hidden plan - but one that you can enable if you'd like.

There is an easy way to do it via this utility from BitSum: Get Ultimate Performance On Any Windows 10 Edition

But you can just as easily do it yourself with a simple bit of a CMD Command. Check out this tutorial from our sister site 10F: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials...mate-performance-power-plan-windows-10-a.html

Additionally, here are a couple more tutorials that you can also peruse from 10F regarding power plans in general:
