Yoga 530 shuts down (hibernate) at 5%battery



My yoga 530 is set to hibernate when battery is 5%.


The settings are in "advance setting for energy savings"; then you can choose for some particular battery states to start a function.

For the state "battery about to die (5%)" (i'm translating from italian, don't know if it's the same) i can choose only from 3 options: 1) shut down 2) hibernate 3) sleep.


The problem is that when my PC is at 5% i just want it keep on, i don't want it to shut down or even sleep or hiberante.


How can i do that?

thanks in advance

Re: Yoga 530 shuts down (hibernate) at 5%battery

Hi giballroad!


Welcome to the Community,


The default option is only to Hibernate, Sleep, or Shutdown whenever the laptop battery reaches Critical Level. We can try to adjust the level to 1%, so that it'll stay on even if it only has 5%,


Right click on Battery Icon

Click on Power Options

Click on Change Plan Settings next to the Power Plan

Click on Advanced Settings

Click on Change Settings that are currently unavailable

Under Battery tab in Advanced Settings, Set Critical Battery Level


Let us know how it goes.

It doesn't go under 3%.


Is it better? no. (thanks anyway, at 1% it would have been perfect) ; does it still remain an unusual and uncleaver setting? yes.
