How you you change cooling mode in the latest Vantage? (Quiet/ Performance)

2020-01-28, 2:15 AM

Just fired up my yoga 730 and found a new and improved looking Lenovo Vantage. However, I can't seem to find the setting to change the cooling mode (Quiet/ Performance). Is it no longer an option that can be changed? or can it still be changed? How?

 

Any help would be great thanks.

Hi ,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You can switch from performance to quiet mode or vice versa by pressing Fn+Q. You can also change the settings in BIOS.

 

Regards!

Auxen

Wow!  Where is that documented?  I had no idea FN-Q did anything.  Is there any way to tell which mode I'm in currently?

To follow up on the original poster's question, can you confirm if this is a current (or former) feature of the Lenovo Vantage application?  I believe it was reported to be an available setting, but it appears that it has been removed as of the latest version available throught the Microsoft Store (version 10.1910.41.0).

One last thing:  I have a Yoga 920-13IKB, and I do not see anything regarding the Performance or Quiet modes in my BIOS.  Can you also confirm if that should be available on that model?

@jonas_hendrickx - Thank you for the information.  Based upon the thread you referenced, it sounds like this functionality is enabled by installing Lenovo Vantage.  It also sounds like there are known features missing from the current version available via the Microsoft Store that may (or may not) make a return to the application.

 

I'd still like to confirm if this Fn-Q toggle is the equivalent of the "Intelligent Cooling" setting (formerly found in Lenovo Vantage).  I'm presuming this capability also applies to the Yoga C920 as well, but it would be good to have a confirmation on that implementation of the power management as well.

 

This all cycles around to the processor frequency throttling that I'm experiencing with long processes (such as encoding).  I'm trying to prevent the throttling when I am not actively using the system to maintain the speed of the process (which can be cut as much as 75% if left to the devices of the power management subsystem).
