I have a Lenovo T510.
In ThinkVantage there are various Power Plans...eg Energy Saver, Timers Off, Power Source Optimized, Maximum Performance, Maximum Battery Life,
Can someone advise me which Power Plan Lenovo sets it to when it is brand new from the factory.

I really need someone with a new T510 in front of them please.
The T510 does not have a default power plan and if you re-read my original email, I stated which ones it had and I am asking which is thr one that it left the factory set on.

Hi Alex 1945:
Okay, I'm typing this on my T510 (bought in December 2010). Lenovo repair center re-imaged my drive and I lost the Energy Saver Profile, which you have. Here are all the power plan profiles that are available on my T510
1. Thinkpad Default
2. Power Source Optimized
3. Timers Off (Presentation)
4. Maximum Battery Life
5. Maximum Performance
6. Video Playback
At least when I got my T510 brand new (pre re-imaging), Energy Saver was selected. Wish I could get that profile back. It set all the options at two green dots. I really got a very long battery life using that profile. Currently using Power Source Optimized, which does well but doesn't get me the battery life of the Energy Saver (although the difference is small).

Funny,mine is only 4 weeks old from factory. It doesn't have default!!
On another matter, have any of you noticed that there is a single point for both mic and headset.
I found this company
eVerbatim in Maryland USA who make a special splitter cable for T510 and similar.
I have already received it and it like a Y connector cable $29 US
