Laptop running slow - check power settings

I noticed my laptop was running very slow. Then one day in Task Manager I noticed under the Performance tab that the CPU was only running at 0.97 GHz. Why was this?

I discovered the power options were set to "Power Saver". On setting it to "Balanced", the CPU returned to it's true 2.8 GHz.
