I have set a new Power Plan in the Lenovo Power Manager, we'll call it My Power Plan.. In there I set the Idle Timer to enter System Standby to 20 minutes for battery operation, 60 minutes for AC operation, and the Enter system Hiberation to 30 minutes to battery operation and Nevere for AC operation. I think Apply and say OK to exit. If I check a little later, all is well, things are as I have set them.
Yet, when i check some time much later, perhaps a few hours, I will find the settings back to the original numbers. Those were 120 and 140 minutes for entering system standby.
I haven't a clue what's going on but it sounds to me like a bug in the Power Manager.

I too have experience a similar problem.
In my case I had the power manager open, and I accidently dragged one of the "power plans" on top of the other (I didn't even know you could do this). The net result: now I have two "power plans" called "Maximum Performance".
I have yet to figure out how to fix this. Un-installing Power Manager 3, rebooting, and re-installing Power Manager 3 had zero effect. I even checked to make sure that the Power Manager folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities) was empty after the uninstall.
From what I have read, this data is stored as a policy in Windows.
Does anyone have any ideas how to restore the Power Manager plans to the original settings?
