Problem Details:
My osu client started having serious framerate problems yesterday, and pretty much the only thing i changed is power plan setting from 'balanced' to 'performance', which should have the opposite effect.

It takes something around 30-45 seconds to even launch the game, then stays at 30fps in menu, and either freezes when starting a map. If i wait in menu for ~10 minutes before playing, the game doesn't freeze, but frames reach 20-50 during gameplay which is still barely playable. This happens regardless of using integrated intel or nvidia 650m graphics and running as admin or not. i used to get 200fps on integrated alone.
Tried reinstalling osu and reverting the power plan, both to no avail.

Video or screenshot showing the problem:


i don't really understand what it means, but it says something about osu critical error at the end of the file

Restart your computer.

Make sure you have nothing running in the background using up a ton of resources.
Ashamed to admit that restarting osu did fix the freeze issue, even though i turned my laptop on/off a couple of times today. I'm still getting worse performance than i used to, with some hiccups that cause misses, although it's in the playable range now at 80-100 fps.
