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 22.214.171.124. 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 126.96.36.199.
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.

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.

If you had read carefully all the posts after that of Muonium, you would have understood that even his decision was not 100% successful. I personally am one of those who have tried everything in this topic (step by step) and I have not yet found a solution to the problem. Moreover, in one of the earlier posts an employee of Lenovo (Helen12345) says "Thanks a lot for your great help on this issue, with your help, We finally find the root cause, we are tring our best to fix it now" . this I mean only one ..... you can guess.You are also right. The tricks mentioned in this topic have helped several people
