A victory against PowerMizer
In my experience, PowerMizer is a "feature" that only causes headaches. It's awful that it's not user-configurable.
I just figured out how to trick PowerMizer into thinking that the AC adapter is always plugged in, which FINALLY allows me to get a decent framerate for Compiz.
In my xorg.conf, I just add the following line:
Option "ConnectToAcpid" "false"
Unfortunately, Adaptive Clocking is still enabled, and I cannot reliably make my GPUs stay at their highest performance level, without scripting a call to "nvidia-settings -q all" every 25 seconds. This would be fine, were it not for the fact that this causes a framerate hiccup, and worse, xruns in my low-latency professional music software, or, in lay terms, the audio would skip during a music performance, which isn't remotely acceptable.
Furthermore, to get the best performance, I must disable SLI, which is stupid.
I'm using the latest beta drivers, 180.16, and running Ubuntu.
NVIDIA: Please please PLEASE PLEASE fix your drivers so:
