Changing Default Energy Management Options...

[ Edited ]

Since I almost always keep my laptop plugged in, I like my settings set on Optimize for battery Health. However, the option seem to revert to optimize for battery runtime every time I restart (sometimes coming out of sleep even). I have been changing it every time, but it's really getting annoying, especially after I've forgotten 3 times. Is there someway to change Optimize for battery health to the default option?

 

My system is a ideapad y570

 

(If there is another thread that answers this, please just link me, as there were too many posts on energy management not about what I'm asking...)

Lenovo Energy Management Ver 6.0.2.0, and the choice of which to optimize is a seperate setting, and not part of the energy plans, which can be saved...

By the way, I've got exactly the same issue, I have the latest drivers, which were downloaded from the lenovo vebsite, and also I've flashed my bios up to latest version.
