If you have a laptop with an HDR-capable built-in display, there are additional power-related settings for HDR because these displays use more power than non-HDR displays. If youâ€™re running your laptop on battery, playing HDR content can reduce battery life. Therefore, HDR is turned off by default when running on battery. However, you can change the default power setting if you want.
If HDR is turned on when your laptop is plugged in and then you unplug your laptop, HDR will be turned off to help save battery power. If you plug in your laptop again, HDR will be turned on again automatically.
On HDR-capable laptops, the default power settings will turn off HDR when running on battery power. Allowing HDR when running on battery power will reduce battery life.
