Support Evaluation of "On Battery" for Most Client Activities
To reduce potential for failures due to low battery situations and to minimize the ConfigMgr client's impact to system battery life, introduce a check for certain client actions to allow them to be delayed or bypassed when the system is found to be running on battery or running critically low on battery:
+ Software distribution
+ Compliance settings
+ Anti-malware scans
We’ve completed some major battery power improvements in SCCM 1606.

Would be nice if it also pauses the antimalware scan when you disconnect the machine from power.
