Just go to the right hand side of your task bar at the bottom of the screen and click on the notifications balloon. A bunch of tiles will appear so just click on the 'battery saver' one and it will turn on the battery saver. Any help?

There are two aspects to this, depending on what you want:

 

(1) You have charged the laptop battery fully, and will be away from the electric mains for an extended time, and you want to be able to use the laptop for as long as possible (i.e. maximise the time before the battery becomes fully discharged).  For this you want Battery Stretch mode.

 

(2) You will be using your laptop mostly connected to the electric mains, and you want to maximise the time before you have to replace the battery with a new one (i.e. maximise the battery lifetime).  For this you want Battery Conservation mode.  This extends the battery life by charging it only to around 60%, which (of course) means that the laptop will not run as long when not connected to the electric mains.

 

Both (1) and (2) are controlled by the "Lenovo Settings" application.
