Thanks for the link to the article. While I still suspect that the color calibration issue is related to the Intel drivers, the only response that I'm able to get from Intel is that it is a Windows operating system problem and not theirs.
To be clear, the issue described in this article does relate specifically to power savings, which are typically only enabled when running on battery. I do have this particular setting disabled on my laptop in order to maintain color accuracy for
My issue is clearly with the Color Calibration Profiles. The default profile for the laptop, which appears to have no actual calibration at all, has the screen showing a very heavy blue bias. The bias is so strong, that the frames around the
windows, ribbons in the Microsoft Office apps, etc., which should be grey, are displayed as blue. The blue bias also tends to wash out most of the other colors and makes the screen look dull and unsaturated. However, as soon as my Color Calibration
Profile is used, the Windows elements display as grey and the screen colors look much more vibrant. It really is a night and day difference.
When booting up the system or logging into my user account, even on the default blue Windows screens, you can clearly see the change when my Color Calibration Profile is loaded by the system just before it brings up the desktop. Once loaded, it remains
working, as I've said, until the computer is undocked or docked. Then it immediately reverts to the default Color Calibration Profile and the screen shifts back into the blue range again.
I think that for another test, I'm going to remove all of the calibration profiles except for mine and see if that has any affect. If it doesn't, I'll rename my profile to the same name as the default profile and see if that does anything. It's
just something that I thought of now to try. I'll let you know how it goes.
