I have a ideapad Z510 with win 8.1
I enable conservation mode in the Energy manager. Everything is working ok, the battery stays at 60% until I turn off the pc.
When I reboot, most of the time Conservation mode is disabled and the battery is charging to 100% again.
Anybody else experiencing this?

I think someone reported it too, but for Y500. It works fine on my Y580 though.

I was not able to find the page regarding the y500.
I am now trying with this energy manager
which is updated to oct 16 2013 for win 8.1.
The Z510 is not listed among the supported laptops. Should I expect it to work? Any possible issues?

I do not recommend doing that. LEM accesses some low-level settings of the laptop so it is potentially dangerous to install version, which was not designed for it.

I hope that it will be soon...
sergioosh, thank you for you replies. I had already installed the "wrong" EM while you were replying to me and so far everything seems to work correctly.
I had also another problem (probably needs a separate post) and that is that EM at startup would tell me that my AC adapter was not powerful enough??? Also this seems solved after installing this other version.
I will report in a few days to confirm that all is ok

Let's hope it works. I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Does it switch profiles correctly? You can use CPU-Z and NVidiainspector to check if clocks are affected by changing profiles.

It does switch power profile ok. The CPU frequency changes as soon as I switch.
Even with the new EM, if the computer is OFF, and I unplug the ac adapter, but replug it before boot, it recharges to 100% again...Still don't understand if this is by design or what

Mine is working great now. I installed the driver for win 8.1 from another model, don't remember which one.
If I unplug and replug later, conservation mode is still there. Sometimes is deactivated but have3n't been able to identify why. 90% of the time it works consistently and conservation mode stays on
