winsatrestorepower annoyance: disable the WinSAT service

WinSAT (Windows System Assessment Tool) measures various performance characteristics and capabilities of the hardware it is running on and reports them as a Windows Experience Index (WEI) score.

The WEI can be used to show which part of a system would be expected to provide the greatest increase in performance when upgraded. For example a computer with the lowest subscore being its memory, would benefit more from a RAM upgrade than adding a faster hard drive (or any other component).

If you are not interested in this information and you are annoyed by all those winsatrestorepower powercfg alerts, it is easy to free yourself.

Go to Computer Management, Task Scheduler > Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > Maintenance and right click on WinSat to disable it.
