I don't think that being a power users necessarily means that you don't
use the easy way out if one is available.

In fact, over the years, I've actually had to make the concession that
it usually makes sense to use whatever defaults a software producer has
set up.  That's what they are likely to have tested themselves.  So,
I'm much less likely to click on "customize settings" these days.

Maybe that doesn't make me a power user as much as a world weary user.
