Windows 10 - Lenovo Y700 Energy Management - Laptop at 74% & Not Charging?

2017-01-25, 4:21 AM

I don't why Lenovo has Windows 10 Energy Management Drivers available on the download page that don't work. I tried installing and window just shuts down. I read that its because its not compatible with Windows 10.

 

So here is my question. My Y700-15isk is plugged in and when I roll over the battery icon on the taskbar is says "74% and not charging". Is this conervation mode? Why isn't the laptop fully charging? If I am about to go on the road for example, wouldn't it make sense that my battery is able to charge up to 100%?

 

Anyone shed any light on Lenovo's logic?

Hi there, Cloves                      -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

In Conservation Mode, the battery charge level is limited to 60%-75% of its full capacity. This can reduce the battery degradation and extend the battery lifespan.

 

You can also start by flushing out all static, remove battery and AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.

 

Update us how it goes.  

 

 

 

        

Regards,

Yes its in conservation mode, have you tried disabling it by searching on your start menu type in "energy" click on the first thing it pops up. You should be able to disable conservation mode !

So I typed in "energy" into the cortana search and it brought up "Power Options"

 

Nothing about conservation mode in the stock windows 10 menus. AmericanFighter are you running windows 10 and did something else come up for you?

 

Currently my laptop is at 72% still not charging. Ridiculous circus Lenovo drivers are. #LenovoTerribleDrivers

On my Ideapad 700-15ISK with Windows 10 (but without the anniversary update), there is a "Lenovo Settings" application that includes the battery conservation mode.

 

(1) Click:  Start > All Apps > Lenovo Settings. 

(2) On the Lenovo Settings "Home" panel, click the 3-bar icon near the top left of the panel; a drop-down menu appears.

(3) On the drop-down menu, click "Power"; the "Power Status" panel appears.

(4) Scroll down the "Power Status" panel to find the battery "Conservation Mode"; enable or disable as required.  Note "Conservation Mode" is not the same as "Battery Stretch".

I installed the energy Manager 1.5 something which is for Windows 7 8 and it works. That program has the option to fill charge in the settings for each option, conservative, performance etc. Lenovo driver support is terrible still waiting for tech support to respond to my email request.
