I seem to be having an intermittent "Not Charging" issue on my Lenovo Yoga 900.
It usually happens when it's fully charged and I unplug it for a few minutes and then plug it back in. If I let it drop below 93-95% it will usually say "Plugged in, charging" again.
Is this some sort of glitch, or a feature? I tried looking to see if I had the "conservation" setting on, and I do not.
I have a few days to take it back to the store if I need to. I'd really rather not send it in because we have problems with couriers dropping off packages that end up getting stolen because we live in an apartment with multiple locked doors, so they usually pitch it beside the door and run off and then someone else takes off with our stuff. Had it happen a couple of times with Amazon orders. (grr)
Thanks to anyone who can answer this!

Good day and welcome to the community.
This is my experience with my Yoga 900 and Yoga 900S. This way the system isn't trying to constantly top off 1 or 2%, which is not good for the battery. By contrast, Conservation Mode will charge to ~60% and then stop. That has some benefits, also. Personally, I'm not using Conservation Mode, and so far I've not seen any negative effects on my batteries.
Hope this helps.

Yeah, I just wanted to make sure that there wasn't something wrong before the return window ended. I'm afraid that I'm not as up to speed as I once was, having last bought a laptop in 2004. (When I got 2-3 hours on a charge, if I was lucky. *grin*)
My fiance saw someone go through the checkpoint at the airport and asked about this issue, and they said that theirs does it too but only when the battery is in the 90s. Definitely some sort of overcharge protection.
