No.

Seriously, you can't. At best you might be able to jump through some hoops and disable all your laptop's various porwe-saving tools and tricks, but even a lot of lappys still throttle voltages and cpu speeds under battery power, and if they don't your battery life will prolly be something hilariously short like 45 mins.

A laptop with those Specs is deigned to be used Primaryly on AC-Power. (As it is set to do that.) Once taken off AC-Power it will auto switch to Power saving mode and underclock itself so it makes itself power save. Not much you can do besides use it connected to AC-Power and play it on that.
