OneDrive comes with numerous settings that can be altered directly from the OneDrive icon in the Notification Area. Many of these settings have changed over time and Windows 10 has continued to evolve, but some of them have remained throughout all Windows 10 versions.

One of the things you can do from the OneDrive settings is to enable or disable the chance to automatically pause the OneDrive sync when your computer is being used in Battery Saver Mode. One of the reasons you may wish to enable an automatic pause of the sync is to reduce battery usage. Syncing uses more battery than if you weren’t syncing, so it conflicts with those wishing to use a computer in Battery Saver Mode.

Battery Saver Mode is an option all laptops and other portable devices get with Windows 10 as a method to help save battery power when they’re not plugged in.

The following tutorial demonstrates how to enable/disable the automatic pausing of OneDrive syncing when a computer is being used in its Battery Saver Mode.
