This has happened before. When i plug my laptop in, it becomes very laggy, and when i let it run on its battery, it runs perfect. What could be some causes for this and some solutions i could try.

My theory is I live in a trailer park, so could it be caused by people near me sucking up power and it not getting as much as it needs, so it maintains a charge just enough for it not to go decrease any, therefore the computer uses less resources than its potential to save the battery.

(Just a thought)

Its not a neighborhood power issue. This problem could be caused by letting the computer run on its battery till its about dead then plugging in to charge the battery while surfing the net, word processing, streaming videos, or whatever you do on your laptop could cause this to happen. This could cause the laptop to slow down. I for one only use the battery when i only have no available outlet. A possible solution for this you could right click on my computer, goto advanced, goto performance settings and selecting Adjust for best Possible Preformance. This will divert system ressources the would normally be used for graphics and sound and use them for processing. Just make sure when your battery is fully charged that you set it back to let windows choose the best possible choice.
