Missing power options in Lenovo Settings app

Hi!

I wanted to control the battery charging thresholds like I could in Windows 7 so I recently got the Lenovo Settings app. However, the only thing I can see in there beside the power tab is "Power Status", "More" which links to power options found by default in windows control panel, and "Battery Stretch". I have made sure my power management driver is up to date, as well as the app and both the dependency packages. Any ideas?Untitled.pngUntitled1.png

Same problem here. Any solution or workaround you found for this?

I have read about using the registry to manage the thresholds but that just renders this whole app thing useless.

Re: Missing power options in Lenovo Settings app

This all happened after I updated to version 3.155.0.0

I generally read the changelog and then update. There was no changelog for this version at https://settingsfeedback.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1077760-release-version-history but I still went ahead and updated and then it messed up the whole app.

Currently I have Battery Stretch & Conservation Mode enabled and both these options are missing from the app. The performance of my Ideapad 700 is sluggish because of Battery stretch and there's nothing I can do about it except wait for a fix.

Solved for me.

1. Uninstall Lenovo Settings
2. Restart
3. Install Lenovo Settings

If it breaks once again then rinse and repeat. Smiley Tongue

Re: Missing power options in Lenovo Settings app

Windows 10 does not support Lenovo Power Manager.

The following 2 links may help:

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht104070

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht117144

 

The way I read it, within Lenovo Settings power screen, you SCROLL down the screen to find Battery Threshold options.   Turn the option ON.

Report back if your Lenovo Settings does or does not match the documentation.  

Current Lenovo Settings is version 3.155.00 .

Re: Missing power options in Lenovo Settings app

I understand I Untitled.pnghave to scroll down to get to that option. What I'm saying is there's nothing there. My app is fully updated, as are all the dependency packages.

Re: Missing power options in Lenovo Settings app

I have almost the same problem. Thinkpad W500, Windows 10, Settings does not have the Power setting (or the light bulb--Smart Settings) on the left-hand column. So no battery stretch, charge from USB, etc.

 

However, all of this works normally on my second W500. I have uninstalled & reinstalled Settings several times, to no effect. (But the battery gauge is present in the lower left-hand corner of the screen.)

 

Any ideas?

Has any user run CCleaner on their machine?
