Hi All, I'm sorry it takes a long while to finally share with you the software. Like I said, I'll try working with the backend team to make it available in our support site as well. At the moment, let me share with you download link for Power Control Switch. I hope it works.
K_450, thanks for your note. You make my day!

Can you take a look and see what it does to your hard drive activity? I installed it and I am seeing it write to my hard drive quite a bit. I have a SSD and wonder if it will wear out due to the writing.
Also, mine installed in the 32 bit folder whereas the original was located in the 64bit program folder.
I also found the LitModeCtrl service error state 32 being logged in the event log. This was the same with my original install. The dial ran (showed) on the desktop for a long time but it disappeared today.

Sorry for the delay of reply KennyJ.
I got original, included version of Power Control Switch software installed and hopefully i don't need to install this version ever. But it's really good that now we can download this software and we can keep it somewhere safe if disaster strikes!

My history K430 ....Upgraded to twin gt 620 graphics cards,(Lenovo tech approved compatiable)...(FYI..on board motherboard graphics "DEAD" never worked straight from factory)....I maxed the ram slots, Raid setup was total failure ....thus..one drive for O.S.one for jobs and one for program software storage backup with a partition for current image restore, thus-three internal drives..next added extra 12v cooling fans (shock mounted of course) 12v,s because they run directly off the power supplies red 12v s. Then replaced the under sized 250w power supply with a 750w with the cool leds...Its cooling fan sets right over the CPU .
I have given up on why the cool red green blue status lights quit working after the new power supply installation. I believe the fan speed control had stopped working about a month before anyway.... what color the lights were at the time made no difference in fan speed. FYI..I found after testing the voltages that red was 12v and purple was 5v and black ground.
*NOW..In your case...
Is this a single hard drive o.s. or is it a dual hard drive raid set up.? If a single drive then why did you not just clone your O.S. over to the new s.s.d. I use the AOMEI free software both backupper and partition assist. I keep a extra cloned hard drive safely stored away and have the AOMEI set to automaticly save a image restore every few weeks to a seperate network ghost drive as well as third internal partitioned drive. This setup has come handy on few occasions.
