Stupid computer! Bad computer!

My new laptop has the world's most annoying feature: for about 30 seconds after (resuming from hibernate/opening the lid/mysteriously just happens), a popup will appear in the center of the screen announciing:
" Power Save > Increased Performance"
This stupid popup cannot be moved or dismissed. I have no idea where it comes from, or how to alter it.

ASUS Laptop UX50V-Core 2 Solo Dual-1.4Ghz-4Gb RAM-500HDD-15.6"
Product Line: Satellite
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium
Processor Type: Intel Core Solo
Processor Configuration: Dual Core
(and I have no idea how those last two descriptions coexist, but that's not my problem right now)
I've set the power profile to ALWAYS be "Enhanced Performance", never "Power Save". For the record, if I switch to Power Save profile, it pops up with the opposite message.
It's big enough to block a lot of important screen real estate - maybe 20% of the height & width of the screen itself.
There an Intel Graphics utility in the system tray, which I've dealt with on previous computers, and I'm fairly certain the setting isn't there at this point.
Can anyone clue me in how to stop this stupid popup? Or at least reduce it to 1 second, or something reasonable?
