Purcahsed a IdeaPad Z510 a week ago direct from lenovo. After a fresh reboot everytime it's on A/C power and i go to the desktop I recieve a dialog message telling me the power supply is insufficient and needs to be upgraded. I can either close the window or click buy and it takes me to the lenovo website.
I think lenovo should be sending me a new power supply or computer. I am trying to contact them directly too, but it seems I have to pay to talk to someone with a brand new computer????
Solved! Go to Solution.

Screen shot of the dialog I'm receiving. The laptop is charging to 100%
Adapter has Limited Support:
Performance will be affected if the power adapter cannot provide enough charge. Buy

I think it's just a software glitch. I was getting the same message, and uninstalled the Lenovo power management utility. The computer seems to be working fine, and I'm using the Windows power management settings

I'm thinking that also. I don't notice any large power saving or consumption going on right now. I'd be curious what kind of battery life you are getting off a full charge. Mine is almost at 4 hours. Useing the Energy manager right now, I don't get any difference in battery life regardless of the settings I pick.

I had the same problem and I received a replacemnent power supply. No change, the error message is still there. Do you have win 8.1 or win8? I do not remember if I had the error even before upgrading to win 8.1
I removed the energy manager and installed another version (from http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037680), not for Z510.
All works ok and there is no error message. Probably they just need to update the energy manager for win 8.1 for the Z510
