Another Y560 BIOS Issue?

I get the following System Error in my event log which always occurs on start-up:

 

BIOS Version/Date LENOVO 30CN62WW, 7/23/2010

i7 Q720M/ATI 5730 1GB/4 GB RAM

 

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

 

Anyone else getting these?  Should I be concerned?

My Energy Management is version 5.4.1.6 and the version on Lenovo Download site is version 5.4.0.9.

 

I guess I could try reinstalling once my version gets posted.

Y560 Misterious BIOS v62.

Just came along one of the chinese sites and saw a BIOS for Y560 - 30CN62WW . Since there is no update on official Lenovo UK downloads , i d like to have a tip - whats the changelog? And why it wasnt released for Europe? These questions are mainly for Lenovo Support.
