power manager predefined power plans......

[ Edited ]

I really appreciate the Energy Star power plan but it disappeared after I apply it after " maximum performance"

and then both of them became " maximum performance" option.

How can I fix it? Thanks.

Hi,
could you first confirm, whether the configuration by both of these power schemes are identical?

If it's only about the name, then you can change it in following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\
and there you can find the power planes.
NOTE: in this place don't check the folders, which have only ~4 items on the right site, because those are not active.

In case this is not just about the name, but also about the all settings, then go to this registry location:
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2976602532-757418664-403219488-1004\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies
This is the location, where windowns himself is storing the profiles. What you need to do is to copy the whole content of that particular power scheme and import it into the first mentioned registry location.

Let me know, which situaiton fits you.

Oh, yes, of course, as this unexpected situation happened, make sure, that you have the latest version of Power manager installed + also these apps must be up to date:
- Power Management driver
- System interface driver
- Hotkey utility

In case you want to set the whole power planes back, then just uninstall the power manager and install it again, but install it in following roder:
- Power Management driver
- Power Manager
- System interface driver
- Hotkey utility

Cheers

I have reinstalled the power management driver, power man...

I have reinstalled the power management driver, power manager and the lenovo interface driver... but the problem remains unchanged. In the regedit,, HKEY_USERS\ S-1-5-21-2392-445047-1770621573-793653143-1000\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\ maybe due to different version of windows... I found 6 folders 0,1,2,3,4,5 How can I copy those to \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies ?? I have puzzled as I have already reinstalled them but why it seemed to have no changes? thanks If I upgrade to windows 7...how can I have full set of thinkpad software? I know all the programs are available in the Lenovo's site but the about the RESCUE & RECOVERY how can I create the original image of 7?

Re: I have reinstalled the power management driver, power man...

Hi,
you can copy a content of one power plane <of registry folder> by using following steps:
- export that particular key by right-click on it and selecting "Export"
- save it on desktop or any other location
- open this .reg file with Notepad and change the path from :
HKEY_USERS\ S-1-5-21-2392-445047-1770621573-793653143-1000\Control Panel\PowerCfg\....
to
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\...
- save the changes and doble-click the .reg file
- this will pop up a window saying, if you want to save the registry change, just say yes, and you have it now imported in the correct location.

In case you want to have all the TVT applications installed on your system, then just download it from lenovo.com , or start ThinkVantage System update, which will update you system with some of them.

In case the Win7, that you are currently using was installed from the set of Recovery CDs, or it was delivered originally with the machine, then you have in the start menu, or in "My computer" the option, to create a set of original recovery CDs.
In case you have installed WIn7 with some of your own DVD (not Lenovo image), then there are multiple ways on how to get the image of your system:
=> one of the options would be Ghost or similar imaging tool, that will capture the whole system configuraiton of your system
=> the other option, that is also Lenovo related would be to user Rescue and Recovery. Just install it, and create a full backup of your system. You can store it on USB HDD, or on Network share, or on any other place.

Please feel free to ask any additional question to this topic.

Cheers

Re: I have reinstalled the power management driver, power man...

thanks for helping me.

 

 

I found something related to the power manager settings in the regedit:

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\SOFTWARE\Lenovo\PWRMGRV\PowerSchemes\

 

there are a few folders in the power schemes,, and I first backup the folders into .reg files

and I tried to delete them    

http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o105/kan_hung/powerplan.png

 

then one of the power plan disappeared

I examined them and deleted the extra "maximum performance"

 

After that,, I download a "energy star" scheme from lenovo's site:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=engy-star40#power-pl...

 

that seemed the "factory default" have been restored          thanks for your help Herik.
