[MOD] Energy Management on Windows 8 64-bit for Z580

2013-10-23, 7:29 AM

I was tired of the green thing in the Energy Management (Win7 version) on Windows 8, like the brightness and volume indicators so changed it to blue

 

Its a small visual mod, no harms. I made it and been using it myself, so thought of sharing it :)

 

 http://www.mediafire.com/download/1r84pudbh04yrac/utility.rar

 

Instructions:

1> Go to Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Energy Management

2> Make a copy of the file "utility.exe"

3> Copy the file from the downloaded archive

4> Open taskmanager, end process "utility.exe"

5> Paste the file in the Energy Management folder, replace the existing file, make sure the backup is safe

6> Double click on the new "utility.exe" to run the program again

 

Now the indicators and the black background in volume, brightness, thermal management (crescent touch button above keyboard), mute, camera activate/deactivate, touchpad activate/deactivate will be blue

 

To revert back to original, open taskmanager, end process "utility.exe", delete the file from EM folder, bring back the backed up file, double click on it to start the program.

 

 

I am not sure if it runs properly on Win7 (x86 & x64) and Win8 (x86), so if you try and its working please let me know
