Re: Lenovo Vantage Battery Conservation mode gone? Help

All,

 

Sorry for this trouble.  This is a defect in Lenovo System Interface Foundation, not in Lenovo Vantage.  To fix the problem, you have to patch Lenovo System Interface Foundation, or else wait until we release the next version.  If you want to patch it, here are the instructions:

 

First, please download IdeaNoteBookPlugin.zip from one of the following links.  These links are pointing to the same files, so you only need to download one.  If one of the links doesn't work for you, try the other one.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ladx9cjs1sgd1y3/IdeaNoteBookPlugin.zip?dl=0

https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApXWjQB7_a1bhbQXoxVpqOWjkwHo9A

 

Once you have IdeaNoteBookPlugin.zip, extract it to your desktop or some other folder that you can remember.  Then:

1.  Close Lenovo Vantage

2.  Open Task Manager.  (If you never run Task Manager before, you have to click on "More Details")  Then click on "Services" tab.

3.  Sort the list of services by name, then find "ImControllerService".  Right-click on it, then stop it.

4.  Open File Explorer.  Navigate to "C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ImController\Plugins".  Note that "C:\ProgramData" is a hidden folder, so you have to type this path into the File Explorer, or else configure File Explorer to show hidden files.

5.  Find the "IdeaNotebookPlugin" folder, and delete this folder.  

6.  Copy the IdeaNotebookPlugin folder that you extracted from the .zip, to "C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ImController\Plugins".  Basically you want to replace the folder that you deleted in step 5, with the new folder.

7.  When you are done, you should have "C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ImController\Plugins\IdeaNotebookPlugin" and inside this folder should be "x64", "x86", and "PluginManifest".

8.  Reboot the PC

9.  Run Vantage, is the setting back?  If not, may need to close Vantage and then open it again.

Your patch does not work for me (Ideapad 720-13IKB)! I performed it exactly as you wrote and nothing, moreover, the vantage app does not even show the USB chargin option now! Opened and closed the app for many times, reinstalled it, nothing works. I would appreciate if you would really solve this problem, instead of marking this topic as solved, while it does not work for everyone!

If you did other things to try to fix this problem previously, you may need to undo them.  Also, please double-check the version of the file at "C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ImController\Plugins\IdeaNoteBookPlugin\x64\IdeaNotebookPlugin.dll", it should be 1.2.59.17 after a successful patch.

I undid everything, even rebooted before I patched it. How do I check the version of that file? By the way, after the patch, not only did the USB charging option disappeared, but the app is unable to tell me more details about the battery (like its state, etc.)

Find the file in File Explorer, right-click on it, Properties, and click on the Details tab.  If you post a screenshot of this with File Explorer in the background, it will tell me whether you patched successfully or not.

Re: Lenovo Vantage Battery Conservation mode gone? Help

I would rather look forward to seeing your official update after I tried the patch which does not work. What I have done is exactly the same as your procedures wrote

The official update in a couple weeks is going to be the exact same file.  It will just be installed automatically from lenovo server rather than installed manually as per my instructions.  So if you followed my instructions and the patch doesn't work for you, the official update won't work either.  But it's your choice whether I try to help you figure it out now, or if you want to wait until later.

I checked and the version agrees with what it should be.

Re: Lenovo Vantage Battery Conservation mode gone? Help

Well I have the same laptop but for me it did nothing, so it is definitely not a solution.
