High Latency on particular laptop

Specs: Windows 7, i3 1.4 / 4GB
I know this is a very old thread, however I wanted to put my 2 cents in.

I've got the exact same issue - 1 particular laptop having high latency. Would start off good, until I started streaming music. In which it would come to a halt. 1400ms Latency. Other cheap $300 laptop has -1ms Latency.

I was going nuts until I found out the issue...Power Management.

Because my laptop wasn't plugged into its charger, the battery settings were set to maximize power saving on wireless...

Plugged my laptop back into its power charger and BOOM - Better latency.
Still hovers around 32ms, however I can now steam ASOT - winning for now.

Thanks for digging out the link. To my surprise I could still input to that old thread,
so I posted a link there to this thread, in case anyone Google's into it.

Unusual fix - nice one.
