To activate this, go to 

Control panel --> All Control Panel Items -->  Power Options  --> Tab Lenovo Energy Management


Click on Enable Button.


For this walkthrough the Lenovo Energy Management (LEM) Version 6.016 that  works with all IdeaPad systems running Windows 7 was used.

LEM provides a fast switch with four predefined Power Schemes denoted by four  icons.


To see which plan your laptop is under, look for the orange indicator. Each scheme presets your laptop to charge to a certain threshold.

and you have to accept that you have admin rights at every change.

If you choose Super Saver Setting an extra menu Advanced Settings comes on. Users have experienced no audio from their systems after choosing this option, so do check that your audio settings are switched on here.




 Note: In Windows Power Setting there are a few options for you to adjust.

These let you create a power plan that complement Lenovo Energy Manager settings but these are separate.
