Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

The dialog box is completely grayed out. I'm unable to  change any settings. When running on D C or battery, the display goes dark after about 3 min.

 

Thanks

Re: Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

Not sure if you meant the dialog box in the normal Window Power Management is greyed out. Anyway, check my post, "Manage Energy Management" in my Blog as it may be of help.

Re: Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

Hello Agotthelf,

 

I'm running M.S. XP Home Edition ver. 2002 service pack 3.

 

 

I don't know which version of power manager I'm using, but I can tell you how I discovered the problem and how it was solved.

 

Start>Control Panel>Power Options>the Power Options Properties window opens. Settings for Home/Office Desk power scheme was grayed out, useless to me.

 

The problem was solved this way: Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs>Energy Management>Change>Modify is high lighted by default>click Next>unchecked Energy Management.

 

When I returned to the Power Options Properties window, cited above, it was no longer grayed out. I was able to change the settings.

 

I own an Ipad S10 423135U. 

 

Thanks for your reply and for the link to Forum Search Option.

 

If you will please, what's the meaning of R60 946...?

Re: Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

Hello Ronaldkwok,

 

Thank you for your reply and for the link to your blog.

 

I must apologize. My posting was unclear.

 

I think I did a better job of explaining my problem in my reply to 

Agotthelf.

Re: Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

Hi Corky,

Yes, it is much clearer with your explanation. Since you have found a solution, it's OK. You see the Lenovo Energy Managment is enabled by default and takes over from the normal Windows Power Management which is greyed out. You have disabled the Lenovo program and brought back the Windows program. You can use either one that you are happy with. The Lenovo program has much more options but can be confusing as well.

Corky,

 

Bravo on the Energy Management add-remove programs.  I got my wife a S10 XP Home and she absolutely love it but the monitor was blacking out after 1min.  I just follow your fix and now the power options are no longer grayed Tim

Re: Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

Your solution to that 'Power Schemes' (grayed out buttons) problem sure worked for me!  I can now click onto 'Never' at each of the drop down window.  Thank you!

Re: Settings for Lenovo Power Scheme

These instructions worked for me too!! Thanks for posting the resolution. Its as simple as disabling the lenovo specific energy management scheme to windows default which allows you with a better control.. thanks again!
