NVIDIA PowerMizer slows down effects

Registered Member
Hello people!
I'd like to share a problem with you: I'm using a NVIDIA 9600M GT video card with the latest nvidia blobs. I noticed that the effects that require full or almost full screen repaint (such as Present Windows, Minimize and Maximize) goes slo-mo. After some seconds it all goes back to normality. After some research I found out that this could be caused to the PowerMizer settings, infact in all the cases when the performance level goes to level 3 (such as using an external monitor or playing games) I absolutely have no problems.
You may say: "Why don't you disable adaptive power levels?" but I really don't want the laptop temperature to increase further, and I don't want battery life to be reduced. So is there a way to solve this quite stupid problem?
