Keyboard shortcuts for Power Manager Profiles?

2013-01-26, 16:09 PM

is it possible to set up keyboard shortcuts to switch between Power manager profiles? I have several set up in Lenovo Power Manager, and often want to switch between them without having to open the Power manager app every time. It would be good to switch between a "Maximum Performance" and "Maximum Battery Life" with keyboard shortcuts.

 

Thanks in advance.

In the Windows Mobility Center (Control Panel), there is a panel for BATTERY STATUS. Click on the dropdown to select profiles. YMMV Pete

The dropdown shows only three random profiles, which are rarely the ones I'm looking for.

I too am looking for this.

 

Workaround:

Create a shortcut to C:\Program Files (x86)\ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMOSDV.EXE somewhere, and then edit the shortcut properties to add a key combination, lite CTRL+ALT+4.

This will open up a profile selector.
