Re: Lenovo Vantage Battery Conservation mode gone? Help

2018-02-08, 2:56 AM

I don't see a way to update it.  I go into the Microsoft store and it doesn't show the version number there.  The version I have installed is 4.9.183.0.  Is that the latest version?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

The workaround does not work for me. Hope Lenovo will provide us with a full solution in the form of a new version of the Vantage app.

These steps worked for my Yoga 920; Conservation Mode is back.

FYI the version number of my Vantage app did not change. It's still 4.9.183.0. You can check your version from the Vantage main page by clicking the unlabeled menu icon (it's the one with the 3x3 matrix of squares in the upper-left corner), then selecting Preferences (Yeah, I know. Who looks for a version number on a Preferences window, right? It belongs in an About... window.) The version number is in the Lenovo Vantage Information section at the top of the Preferences page.

Reinstalling the Vantage app and also the two drivers are necessary but insufficient steps. As Valdog and Muonium point out, you must also do a HARD reboot/restart, of your machine (NOT simply a soft reboot) to finish the process.

The full procedure seems to have straightened out whatever had become corrupted or misaligned after the recent update to Vantage 4.9.183.0.

Thanks to all for the help with this.

And now the lecture. I'm not mad at you, Lenovo. I'm disappointed.

Lenovo, please test your apps more thoroughly on all currently available versions of Windows, before releasing them to the Microsoft Store and/or pushing out updates. This is sloppy software development. Shame on you.

Yeah, we know. Testing is a pain in the *ss, especially with so many different Lenovo models and versions of those models, multiplied by the number of different versions of Windows.

But you know what's an even bigger pain in *ss? Expecting your customers to be your beta testers without our express consent. Not acceptable, not OK, not cool.

4.9.183.0 is the latest. You have the right version. That's not the issue here. There are other things you need to do to bring back Conservation Mode. See previous posts with step-by-step instructions, including uninstalling and reinstalling 4.9.184.0 and the removal of a couple of devices in the Control Panel (which will be automatically re-installed) and doing a HARD restart/reboot of your machine.

See Muonium's post (#21 in this thread) for step-by-step instructions that resolve the Conservation Mode issue. Every step he lists is essential, all the way through the HARD restart/reboot of your machine.

The problem is not the version of Vantage. See Muonium's post (message 21 in this thread) for step-by-step instructions for fixing this issue.
