This is become funny. So many issues with battery and NO ANY LENOVO support. Some body can tell me if LENOVO have online support. Let say when i have problem with HP they have such options. But LENOVO just sending me mails that i have to buy more and more LENOVO things. But, please, with such technical support will i go to buy another LENOVO?

FINALY PROBLEM SOLVED
I just followed most frequent agvise.
01. Uninstalled battery driver from Task Manager
02. Disconnected AC power
03. Unscrew 10 bolts of back cover and remove cover. As you know YOGA 3 PRO have not battery slot, that why u need anscrew back cover to reach battery
04. Carefuly disconnect battery jack. Very easy to find because only 2 black wires going from battery.
05. Connect battery jack back
06. Plug in AC power
07. Check that battery start charging. This is up to u, but I just start the Laptop with open back cover, good thing that screen can flip.
08. Confirmed that battery charging, OKO gives 3.5 hours from 0%
09. After 2 hours, battery has reach 95%
10. Switch off AC power, disconnect power cord and close back cover.
Feeling satisfaction. With myself of course not with LENOVO support.

This solved my same problem on my Yoga3. Cannot thank you enough MarinM!
I tried various solutions described on the Lenovo Community Boards, nothing solved it. I called Lenovo warranty support 877-453-6686 and they had me uninstall and resinstall OneKey Optimizer, and uninstall the Device Manager, Batteries, Microsoft ACPI (which reinstalls automatically upon reboot). This did not fix the problem and so I was provided with return-for-warranty repair information (Fedex, RMA, forms, emails). All a positive service experience, but the problem is software, not hardware, so they'd likely have done a system restore and I'd have been without my computer for two weeks and had to restore and reinstall everything.
Instead, I just followed MarinM's solution:
Unplug AC adapter
Open OneKey Optimizer
Choose Save Power, from top row of icons
Choose Battery Conservation, from the row below the icons (Checking Power Ultra Saving Battery Conservation)
Click the Battery Sleep Mode slider to turn it on (blue)
Shut down computer
Insert AC adapter
Turn on computer (this automatically resets the battery sleep mode to off)

I had the same problem and solved it by enabling "Battery Sleep Mode" in OneKey Optimizer.
When you open OneKey Optimizer, click on "Save Power", then "Battery Conservation" and turn on "Battery Sleep Mode", then shut down your computer, insert the charger and turn it on.
Just want to confirm that this worked for me.

MarinM's battery saver solution worked for me too, thanks! One change to BrunoP's helpful list of steps: you do not need to unplug the charger until after you shut down, if even then. I had to do it this way because my computer would no longer work unless plugged in. The solution still worked.
