Power manager 6.07 update

[ Edited ]

I updated to Power manager 6.07 and also updated the pm driver. I noticed in Thinkvantage Tool box that the Battery Status shows the condition as unknown and the warranty date as Expired. This information used to be present there. I am not sure of when this started, I just noticed it after I updated the power management software. The Power manager utility shows the battery condition as good. Any connection to the updates?

Re: Power manager 6.07 update

I see the same thing too. It is related to the Power Manager update. There's some information that the toolbox needs that is no longer being supplied. Not a biggie in my opinion. Whether it will be fixed is problematic since LTT is no longer offered.

Another crappy software update which clearly lacks QC.

Re: Power manager 6.07 update

Lol. I set all of my settings to what I needed and uninstalled Power Manager. Battery thresholds are kept and it doesn't seem to toggle my full charge capacity sporadically now.

Lol well, While we are at it the Nvidia gauge also does not show up in Power manager either.

Re: Power manager 6.07 update

I keep the Optimus state view pinned in my start menu anyway. Shows me the specific processes requesting Optimus too, which is nice.
