Lenovo P50 - Airplane Mode

2017-07-08, 19:05 PM



I am having annoying problems with the Lenovo Airplane mode - this is the mode which other users have complained about - it prevents the battery from charging without any obvious notification that it has done this.


I have disabled Airplane Mode AND Auto Detection in the Lenovo companion. However it is still randomly turning itself back on and stopping the battery from charging. Is there any way I can turn this of permantly?

May help, not sure for your current issue since it is not stuck, it might disable it permanently for a while at least. http://www.faceofit.com/how-to-fix-airplane-mode-not-turning-off-in-windows-10/

EDIT: also wanted to say it stops charging as the max Watt limit on a airplane is 65w (small lenovo brick) and this will charge the laptop while off and keep it going when on but will not charge it as P50 needs about 135w to charge while on, hence our 175w brick.
