Windows is not a real-time operating system, and does not give particularly strong guarantees regarding when it decides to schedule threads for execution

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms685096%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

 

IMO, It's not that Windows doesn't make guarantees... It does make quite a lot of them, actually, but it cannot guarantee what the hardware does. Most laptops and tablet PCs have hardware power-saving features that can't be controlled by the OS, to save power - this is also why it appears as though the OS "knows what it's doing better than you" - the hardware does that, not the OS.

 

This is interesting: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms684247%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
