Hey I use the power manager pretty hard. And I recently did a fresh install of a completely retail version of windows. I was using a sketchy burnt version of windows. However I used two different directly downloaded images of Window 7 Professional. On both installs the powermanager indicator on the taskbar failed to load and doesn't till this day. I just dismissed it however today I went to open my start menu and got a message that PowerManager has crashed. I had a few incidents when putting the laptops lid closed it did not go into sleep like it does 95% of the time. This caused the laptop to get very hot in the laptop sleeve I was transporting it in, not good!
Is this a known issue with a windows update perphaps?

Jus wondering after you refreshed your machine with the new windows, did you loaded the new drivers from the lenovo site as well as installing the lenovo application such as think vanatge. Currently there are specific updates on the powermanagement found in the Lenovo support sites for specific models.
I Highly recommend you download all the updates for your system first, that should resolve your issues.
Do let me know how it goes.

This actually fixed the issue! Thanks a ton, I usually only update from the lenovo update application however going directly to the site and downloaded the powermanager package and reinstall seemed to have fixed the problem. I'm about to do the same for the drivers. Does the lenovo update application not always hve the latest versions of software?

Very good too know I always assumed I have the latest updates! I do really love that utility though especially coming from a new load, all I have on a flash drive in the WLAN drivers and that but now I'm thinking maybe I should download all the drivers directly off the support site just to make sure I have all the latest versions. How well does Windows update take care of this?
