Default Feature Request: Power save option

I run Prime95 on a laptop, and I frequently disable when I unplug from the power supply so the battery lasts longer. Can an option be added to do this automatically?

Thanks,
Drew

Open Prime95, Select options - preferences and uncheck "Run program even when using Laptop Battery Power".
