Yoga 13 - Screen Flicker (Battery)

Is it expected behavior to have a lot of screen flicker during battery use (in any mode;  tablet, laptop, tent, etc.)?  This is very annoying.  Running balanced power plan on my system.  I'm not sure if it's because of the touch system or not.  I don't notice this type of issue on any of my other laptops (non-touch).

First rule out any of the battery saving features, i.e. disable Auto Screen Brightness in Lenovo Energy Management.

I'll check out the battery and also the screen auto adjusting functions.  This only seems to happen when not on the desktop - only in tile applications.

Same problem here. Also have had problems with the "auto screen brightness" suddenly dimming when I start using the touch screen, as if the light sensor is getting tricked out by my hand or something (though I'd think it would brighten, not dim, due to the shadow of my hand, so this is a REALLY weird one).

It was the Intel power saving feature that was causing this on mine.  Turning it off fixed it.

 

  • Go to Control Panel > Intel Graphics and Media
  • Click the Power category on the left.
  • Set Power Source to "On Battery"
  • Uncheck "Display Power Saving Technology"

Thanks! I had disabled the Auto-Brightness in the Lenovo Power Management AND in the Windows personalization settings, but still had the flicker. This fixed it!
