No, Power Manger should display your personal power schemes. I've noticed my schemes disappear when I accidentally used windows power manager - I guess the Thinkvantage one and the windows one do not like each other. Anyway it took me a few hours and I only managed to display the standard themes correctly so I would advise against trying to solve this problem on your own. (reinstalling Power Manger didn't help and finally a clean OS install worked) Oh, I can see my personal power scheme in context menu in Vista, though I though it worked the same in XP.


Yet there is a new scheme that actually fits me needs - Energy Star sets the display brightness to about 40% and energy usage to minimum while on battery so you get the most time while display is readable. That was the only one I was missing from the default scheme set.

Agreed. Energy star should be called "the only one really useful scheme" :) It's lightning fast on AC and not too slow for work in battery mode.
