Y70 battery is plugged in but is not charging at only 61%

I have a brand new Lenovo Y70 running Windows 8.1 and the battery is plugged in but does not go above 61%.

 

It says: 61% available (olugged in, not charging).

 

I;ve looked many time under Power Options but I don't see any settings for this anywhere.

 

All Windows Updats have been installed, and the Lenovo Update says it is up to date too.

 

Anyone know what is going on?

Open Energy Management in the Taskbar. The battery mode is set to Conservation mode which control the charge level to 55-60% to prevent Battery life reduction due to long period of charging.

 

That is the reason.

Thanks, I found this in the "Lenovo Settings" app under "Energy Manager".
