So I ended up unplugging my laptop and letting it run down to about 30%, plugged it back in and put lenovo power manager to high performance, deactivated and activated the conservation mode.

 

It seems to be holding a charge at 60% now like it should. 

 

This still doesn't seem right, but it's working now.


  That helped. Unplugged the Z40-70 till about 50%, plugged it back in and it charged to 60% and Conservation Mose has kept it there. Also ran Gauge Reset while on the battery, and the Fan dust removal while I was at it.

Re: Energy Management conservation mode not working

My NEW Y50 Touch UHD ($1700!) system is was not allowing me to charge over 55% because Conservation Mode was stuck on, now after updating with the new Energy Manager realed 03/17/2015 it is ONLY charging to 100% even though Conservation Mode is still stuck ON.

 

It will not change state, I change it and close the panel, it goes back to ON. This is clearly a major issue.

 

What the hell man?! THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED, IT IS ONE OF SEVERAL PROBLEMS!!!

We need a permanent fix to this issue. It is killing our battery life. What you have given us is a workaround. Please dont put the fault in us killing the battery when the conservation mode do not work. If not then just bring back the removable battery.

Re: Energy Management conservation mode not working

Create a Folder call C:\EM8\Log to capture how the battery charges and discharges.

Charge your battery to 100%. Plug out power source. I realised my battery dip to 80% right away!!! Is this s sign of battery depleting already?

Re: Energy Management conservation mode not working

I have the same Problem. Lenovo please help to fix this. After the bios Update and the installation of the newer version of the energy manager the conversation mode stoped working. Everytime i turn it on, it turns it off by itself.

Re: Energy Management conservation mode not working

Eventually I sent my laptop back to Lenovo because nothing was working to
correct that issue, turns out I had a bad motherboard.

I highly recommend calling support and seeing if you have the warranty, when
it never works right is a bad sign.
