LBC changes ClockRes
« on: December 19, 2014, 06:14:35 PM »
I was reading a article about apps that change the clock-res and it hurting battery life on laptops and the sysinternals guy has a clockres checker.  I ran it and mine was changed.  I realized that starting / stopping LBC changes clockres.  Neccessary?

Chrome changes it when a video plays but will return it to 15 when you close a tab or such.
