Geez, another problem, my graphics card or something else seem to be underclocking itself...

If I load up a game, guild wars 2 for example it will run fine at say 50fps and if I then not touch the laptop or the mouse and leave the game running for 2-3 minutes, i see the fps drop to about 30, but as soon as i push the mouse or apply any sort of input the fps goes straight back up...seems like some sort of power saving feature for idling? any ideas?

It's annoying especially in FIFA when I use a gamepad and the laptop doesn't seem to recognise gamepad as input so the fps will just drop dramatically 2-3 minutes into a match...
