Default [Q] Stuck in extreme power saving mode

I switched on extreme power saving mode because I only had 6 percent battery life left and didn't have access to an outlet. Now that I do have it charging, it wont let me disable it. When I click exit it just says Please Wait (been like that for about 20 minutes). Any idea how to fix this?
I am completely stock and unrooted
I've tried shutting down and restarting

Only way i can think of is to reboot to bootloader and factory reset. Plug it in your computer to see if you can save your pics and stuff. If you went to a sprint store that is what they would do.

To get into bootloader power off device hold volume down and the power button. Click hboot then factory reset. That should do it.
Screw you guys i'm going home

Thanks for the response. After about an hour of trying any and everything to get it working I was able to find a way into the power save settings and disable it from there. Not really sure what happened

For some reason both power saving modes are greyed out & I can't even turn them on, any suggestions?

I was able to get mine greyed out by going into Developer Options and checking the High Performance Mode option. Maybe yours is checked?

How did you get into the power save settings? I wasn't able to when I was stuck in extreme power save mode.

I went to phone, then the menu button, settings, then click the back button on the top right and it will take you into the System Settings

DONATE TO ME
Same thing happened to me I called HTC and we got it into safe mode and when I hit the home button extreme power saving mode pooped up as a homescreen/launcher along with blink feed and nova so I selected nova and no more issues
