Z50-70- Lenovo Energy Management and Windows 10

2015-07-30, 8:38 AM

Hello everyone (I don't know if this post should be here or in the Windows 10 section, so apologies if it's in the wrong place).

 

I have a Lenovo Z50-70 and the upgrade to Window 10 it's ready to install. I just downloaded all drivers for Windows 10 but I noticed that there is one that doesn't have a Windows 10 version: "Lenovo Energy Management". For me, this is the most useful thing Lenovo has preinstalled in my computer, especially the conservation mode... And it would be extremely annoying to lose this utility.

 

So... Is Lenovo going to release a W10 version of the Energy Management tool? Either way, would the W8.1 version work anyway on Windows 10?

 

Thanks.

I have Z500, Power Management still works. But you need to re-install Intel HD Graphics driver.

Thermal manager for me works if I just put it into the search bar. Can anyone help with the thermal though? It's the half moon button.

Sorry I meant energy management works if I search for it. Thermal is still useless.

Ok, it work just fine after the upgrade.

 

But now my laptot is laggy, so I guess I'll have to perform a clean install.

Ok, I just finished doing the clean install and everything works smoothly. I had an issue with the drivers though (the Intel HD control panel didn't work, but I downloaded the most recent version from their website and now it works fine).

 

I didn't have any problems with the Energy Manager with the upgrage nor with the clean installation though.  However, what @dylan6994 says is true, until you reinstall the Energy Manager your battery will be stuck in the mode that it was before the update, so I would recommend to install W10 with the conservation mode disabled.

This helped me too

My Energy Management worked even before the clean installation, so I don't know if the clean installation would help you.

 

I had a lot of things installed, so the performance after the upgrade was poor to say the least. The clean installation works better indeed, but it's easy to mess things up (specially when it comes to delete the contents of the Windows partition or dealing with driver issues). So, unless you really know what you are doing, I wouldn't recommend it.
