PowerSafe Mode


Hi, I'm quite new to using PhpStorm. Unfortunately, there is no German user interface, or is there something in work? What is the PowerSafe mode?


Hi there,

From https://www.jetbrains.com/help/phpstorm/2016.3/status-bar.html

Power Save Mode. Select this check box to minimize power consumption of your computer on account of eliminating the background operations. To indicate that the mode is on, Hector fade hectorOff

When Power Save Mode is on, PhpStorm reduces its functionality to the one of a text editor, by not executing expensive background activities that drain laptop battery. These activities include error highlighting and on-the-fly inspections, autopopup code completion .

You can also toggle Power Save Mode through the "File | Power Save Mode" command on the main menu.
