How to set Power Management Mode Automatically


Apologies if this isn’t the right place, but I am looking for a way to set the setting in
“NVidia Control Panel” -> “3D Settings” -> “Manage 3D Settings” -> “Global Settings” -> “Power Management Mode”
to “Prefer Maximum Performance”

I have found an old documentation page from 2003 talking about using NvCpl.dll and the function “nvSetPwrMzrLevel” but I cannot seem to get this to work, I suspect it’s been updated/changed since then?

We have a teaching cluster of around 500 machines with half-height GTX1050s in for teaching, and they are dipping into ‘low power’ mode when doing non-intensive processing, causing the screens to flicker when small tasks such as java-script in a browser or YouTube videos. Not really feasible for us to manually go around setting this, so really hoping there’s an answer out there!

Thanks in advance
