Re: Yoga 2 Pro Energy Manager: Conservation Mode and Express Charging

This should be located under the Energy Manager app. Extend the menu (looks like three horizontal line) and you should see it there.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Energy Manager: Conservation Mode and Express Charging

Hi and thanks. Well, part of the problem was that the energy management app was not installed. I assumed the Yoga came with it installed, but apparently not. In desktop view, I now can find the app in 'show hidden icons', however I don't find it in the 'tile view', and when I pull it up under 'hidden icons' I don't see the three horizontal lines you refer to. One of my major frustrations with the Yoga is that some apps are so small on screen I find them almost unusable.

 

I should tell you that I've been a Mac user for many years, and am trying to make a transition to Windows 8.1, but am having some difficulties in the process.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Energy Manager: Conservation Mode and Express Charging

OK - I have it figured out. I had installed the wrong energy management app (for other Lenovo computers). I've uninstalled it and have installed the correct verysion for the Yoga 2 Pro. I now see the three lines that expand the menu and should be good to go going forward. Thanks for your assistance!

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Energy Manager: Conservation Mode and Express Charging

I know the feeling. I too was a Mac user, but the more I used Windows, the more I adapted to it. Lots of great websites and Youtube videos on what to do on Windows. Overall, I think Windows 8.1 is the best Windows Microsoft has created. Can't wait for Windows 9 Smiley Happy

Press the Windows button on your keyboard and start typing.

 

By the time you have typed  energy  there will be 1 option in the list in the upper right corner ....

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Energy Manager: Conservation Mode and Express Charging

I have the same problem that I choose the conservation mode but it keeps charging over 90% and then I get a warning that this could shorten the life of the battery. I've had this laptop several months and not been able to resolve this. Can anyone help? Thanks Kim

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Energy Manager: Conservation Mode and Express Charging

When I first got my yoga 2 pro, I found the energy monitor and enabled Conservation mode so that my battery would not charge to 100% when I had the laptop plugged in.

 

Now as of the past week, even though Conservation Mode is still enabled, my laptop is charging up to 100%.

 

I'm not sure what has happened/changed. Looking for suggestions!
