(Z570) Lenovo Energy Management for Windows 8

Greetings,

 

I have an IdeaPad Z570 running Windows 8 RTM. i have downloaded and installed Lenovo Energy Management for Windows 8 (8.0.2.20) from the Drivers & Downloads.

 

The application installed successfully, but i can't set the battery mode to "Optimized Battery Health" once i set it it goes back automatically to "Maximum Battery Life"

 

Thanks alot

Re: (Z570) Lenovo Energy Management for Windows 8

The whole software is bugged. 

 

Hotkeys for the fan and other touch buttons don't work (yes these are powered by this program)

Relaunching the program, without a restart, often leads to missing blocks or crappy UI look

In-ability to save setting

...

 

 

I ended up installing the old power management system, taking its files and adding them to what is broken on the new system. In short, it was a major pain, but I have a nearly flawless system now with the looks of the new and functionality of the old.

 

 

If only I can get 1key theater working, I will leave this forum.

Do the touch buttons work? If so, it was partially applied and I will need to work on the patch next week when I get home.

Thank you for the follow up, really appreciated.
For me the 3 volume ones work since i installed win8, but the fan button still don't work.. Although i notice now that it lights up high and then low like it's being touched each 3 seconds !

Really hope you can help us

Nothing changed, tried the whole process from the start again removing win8 EM software and installing win7 EM and following the instructions from your forum but nothing changed Smiley Sad
