Ideapad 700 battery conservation mode

Hi,

 

Lenovo Settings mentioned that it is better to set battery conservation mode to "ON" if most of the time I am my AC plugged in. May I know is this true?

 

I have set this to ON but it will reset to OFF mode, when I on/off my AC. May I know how to save this setting?

 

Kind Regards,

Bayee

Re: Ideapad 700 battery conservation mode

Hi Bayee,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Forums.

 

In Conservation Mode, the battery charge level is limited to 55%-60% of its full capacity. This can reduce the battery degradation and extend the battery lifespan. When the AC adapter is still connected and the battery reaches its charge limit, you will see a "Plugged-in not charging" message when you hover on the battery icon in the notification area --the power then gets routed to the AC adapter.

 

If you'll be using the machine for gaming or run any graphics intensive apps that requires you to be plugged-in all the time, I would recommend you enable conservation mode. In this way, you can prolong the battery life and you won't need to go to the whole cycle of recharging the battery every day.

 

If conversation mode is disabling Please create a directory -- C:\EM8\Log -- and toggle the conservation mode setting in Energy Manager. The setting should persist after a reboot.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Shashi

Hi Shashi,

 

Thanks for your reply. I am not using Energy Manager to set the conservation mode, I am using Lenovo Settings app to enable conservation mode. May I know is it the same as to create the C:\EM8\Log as well?

 

Lenovo Settings APP link.

Hi Bayee,

 

As far as I know, this is not possible in Windows 10. This feature was removed. However, I would suggest you to visit the nearest Lenovo service centres for further assistance.

Re: Ideapad 700 battery conservation mode

Hi, 
Today i had a problem with my Lenovo Settings app and my laptop was on conservation mode then i turned it to normal charging, after i charged my laptop till 100% i just tried to enter to Lenovo Settings app but suddenly it didn't open and was written "Check your account, This app is currently not available to you.
I don't have any option to get the conservation mode back, i really need that mode to play without any worries that my battery could be damaged because of charging while playing.
Please help.

Re: Ideapad 700 battery conservation mode

A fresh install of Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings might do a trick for you.

Uninstalled via the start menu and reinstalled via the store.

 

Update us how it goes.

Shashi has suggested downloading the current versions of the applications from the Microsoft Store.  If you don't have an account with the Microsoft Store, and don't want an account with the Microsoft Store, you can download from this web site a version of the older Lenovo "Energy Manager" application that offers battery conservation mode. 

 

The "Energy Manager" application was written for Windows 7 or Windows 8, but it works on Windows 10.  The only problem is that on the 700-15ISK, the application does not remember the setting of battery conservation mode (so you have to enable it each time you power on the system).  This is the application:
