I'm having a really weird issue with my lenovo y500. In two games I've played so far (TF2, and minecraft) my latency starts to sky rocket after some time if I have my power inserted. When I remove the power, and thus play on battery my latency drops again. Ofcourse playing on battery gives me lag, so I'd rather like to have this issue fixed.
I tried installing new drivers for the wifi driver but that didn't solve this problem.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
This might be a power save issue
Open Control Panel / Hardware and sound / Power Options
Now Take note of your Selected Power Plan
Click on the Change Plan Settings Beside it (link to photo)
A new window will show up now click Change Advanced Power settings at the bottom. (link to photo)
A new windows will show up, make sure it is your selected power plan you are changing
Now look for Wireless Adapter Settings / Open it up by clicking the plus sign beside it
Make sure that the Power Saving mode on both AC adapter and Battery are on both Maximum performance
After changing the settings
Try to do a test and see if that works
Hope this helps
