Bitdefender Antivirus Plus Profiles Messes Up With Power Plan Settings
So recently I had my Lenovo Legion laptop reinstalled with Windows 10 and after using it for a day or 2 I noticed that my laptop's power plan settings wouldn't let me change my screen timeout settings along with some other options as well (like changing my fan settings). Everytime I would set the screen timeout to any other time (For example, setting it to 1 hour from the default 15 minutes) and restart my laptop, the screen timeout would reset back to 15 minutes.
This was doing my head in and I had no clue as to what was causing the issue. I had to call Lenovo's technical support to find out the issue and even they were confused as to what was causing the problem, with both of us trying to fix it for 2 days. And then today I find out (when searching through google) that the main culprit is the damn Bitdefender's profile setting options. When you switch on those profiles it stops letting you change some of the settings in the power plan.
Okay I know there's also the options in those profiles that lets those profile adjust power plan settings by itself, but when you try to toggle it off and save it, the settings don't remain off and they go back on, especially the 'Game Profile' setting. That's the biggest culprit out of all of them.
This is very disappointing to see that your software has such a massive bug which would annoy so many users, knowing how so many people rave about how good Bitdefender is.
You need to sort this problem out so that other people don't fall into the same trap as I did.
