Re: U330 + Windows 7 Drivers Problem & Solutions

Hi guys,

 

 

this seemed interesting and i thought i should share it with you.

 

http://www.mydigitallife.info/2010/03/25/unlock-and-enable-multitouch-gestures-on-synaptics-touchpad...

 

it enables multitouch on most laptops and i can confirm it works perfectly on the U330

 

it only gives two finger scrolls and some 3 finger options

 

does not give pinch to zoom and does remove chiralmotion

 

hope this is of use to some of you! :smileyhappy:

downloading it now :smileyvery-happy:

 

was trying to enable multitouch before with no luck...

chiral is cool but i think coasting works fine also, but, I don't wanna to lose momentum, can't live without it :smileywink:

 

edit:

OMG, it works !!!! it is so cool

as for chiral, well, how can you chiral scroll with two fingers anyway ?!?!?! :smileytongue:

 

it is perfect, momentum is still here, it's so cool

can't figure out three finger flick thing, what does it do exactly, it should do forward and backward navigation while surfing, or what ?!?!

 

three finger press works great

 

I'm so happy with this one, thanx a lot coldlazymo, here is kudo for you mate

 

 

p.s.

sorry for bad english

I was kind a sad when I saw this thread

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-7-Discussion/Battery-Life-Decrease-In-Windows-7/td-p/168772/page...

 

edit:

in thread above, there are few guys said that disabling tihinkpad power management did help to reduce crazy battery wearing, so, for ideapad, at the moment, I'm testing if disabling "Lenovo Energy Management Software" will do any good. It can be disabled here:

 

start > under search type: msconfig and run it as admin > on startup tab find Lenovo Energy Management Software and disable it

 

from now on, only change is that windows is managing powerplans, not software by lenovo

 

here you can also find Lenovo Battery Management Software Ver3.0, but, acording to this post:

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-7-Discussion/Battery-Life-Decrease-In-Windows-7/m-p/173122#M4535

 

i think it sholud be as it is...

 

will post my experience later

 

p.s.

sorry 4 bad english

Re: U330 + Windows 7 Drivers Problem & Solutions

edlivian,

 

We are working with ATI on the video drivers - the issue after resuming from suspend that is affecting battery life.

I don't have a estimated date for the fix - I think we've been in this state for about a month.  (although the issue is much older and we spent some time trying to recreate it and determine exactly what interactions were causing the trouble)  From my experience, it often takes 1-2 months  when working through development and getting the supplier involved to get revise code and then test and release as the Lenovo version.  So, I would guess probably a couple more weeks.

 

I'll see if I can get some update for Thursday.  

 

Mark
