I have the G570 notebook. It's two months old. I have noticed that when two users are signed in at the same time, the Lenovo Energy Management is using 25% CPU for the first user signed in. The only way to stop this is to log off of the first account.
I did a search for this problem and found something similar here for a different lenovo system
That advice was to reinstall the Energy management software. Would that apply to me? If so, Lenovo Energy Management currently installed is version 188.8.131.52 and version 184.108.40.206 is offered at drivers and downloads. If I should be reinstalling the older version, do I uninstall the current version first?
I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

The lenovo energy management that is presently installed says it's version 220.127.116.11. Meanwhile, the version at the download drivers section for G570 is version 18.104.22.168, so I can't reinstall the current version unless it's available somewhere else.

As I previously mentioned, I can't install the latest version because the version in this G570 is newer than the version offered at the download page.
This computer didn't do this prior to it being repaired (OS reinstalled and latest bios, as per repair report).
Now if two users are logged in, the inactive user's Lenovo Energy Management immediately starts using 25% CPU. Meanwhile, the inactive user shows as "disconnected" in Task Manager.
I logged off of my account because of this.
I'm not able to use this computer as it was designed to be used with the high CPU usage being incurred when two users are signed in.

Does anyone know what is causing this problem? It is also causing the battery to need charging more often.
When I got this computer in December, I never even heard the fan. Now if two users are signed on, the Lenovo Energy Management uses 25% CPU and the fan is constant until one user signs off Windows.

I can try that, yigit. It's a bit time consuming for me to set it up. Maybe I'll try it tomorrow. I'll let you know if that fixes it. I hope so.
EDIT: When I bought this computer, it was preloaded with some junk, which I removed. When support reinstalled the OS it didn't have all the junk.
Do you have any idea of what image I would get when I use the one key restore? Would I get what support reinstalled or what was initially on the computer at purchase?

I have a concern about that. If I use the OKR and get what was originally installed on the computer, is it possible that I will also get all those BSOD's and problems waking the computer from sleep? (They started quite soon - I got the computer December 22 and the first BSOD/wake problem was January 5) Could there be a problem with the factory image installed?
Will it affect the bios? I now have the latest bios 2.14.
