Optimizing battery run time and battery life Faulty setting

On windows 7 this mode on Energy management software limits the charge percentage to 60% on Z580

 

But the charging doesnot stop it keeps charging and discharing to keep the level stable at  60%. Does that not void the whole point of running this mode?

Re: Optimizing battery run time and battery life Faulty setting

Welcome to the forum toxicdevil.

 

     The Energy Management for Win 7 is behaving normally. There is a 5% range, for when the system will initiate the charging sequence. It should begin charging when the battery gets down to 55%, and stop at 60%. If your gauge does not stop charging at 60% (Plugged In, Not Charging) you could have a problem.

 

      Also, I noticed in your other post, you had upgraded to Win 8.1.

 

EDITED: Here are the Energy Management drivers for the Z580 under Win 8.1:

The version you told me does not allow me to turn my bluetooth on or off.
