I hate how the lock screen works on Windows. This is perhaps an oversight and for me a security issue, so I’ll share some information on how to make it work better.
It is easily possible to show the Always On Display on Galaxy phones while charging through such option in Settings, but then you lose the ability to show it when tapping the display. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make it show up both ways.
After a long time of ignoring this platform and only ever having tried CloudReady (which this is based on), I tried to install ChromeOS on some of my older machines. While the older ones like Thinkpad X200 performed poorly as expected, newer machines performed well. I’ll elaborate on a few different points in which I see the value of this OS.

This article is about what software I chose, which software it replaced as well as reasons why this was done. Oh and of course, I’ll start with hardware.
I am trying to document how much of an impact VFIO has on gaming performance. More benchmarks will come in the future, but for now, let’s look at Forza Horizon 5.

Unplugging the battery won’t help (although I have heard that supervisor password on some models can be removed this way) and getting Lenovo to fix it for you can be time-consuming, especially compared to how easy to service and how well documented these machines are.
