What power adapter are you using?  Are you using the one that came with the P70?

What are the details on the label of the power adapter?

Win7 or Win10?  If Win7, what are the settings in your Power Manager plan for battery, and agenda?

Please try this:

1.  run Lenovo Settings

2.  go to the 'Power' section  (click on the battery icon on the left-hand side)

3.  scroll down until you see "Airplane Power Mode"

4.  make sure it is turned OFF

The airplane power mode might have been triggered by turning on airplane wireless mode (e.g. pressing F8 button).  To avoid this behavior in the future, you can uncheck the "Enable auto-detection" option in Lenovo Settings in that same location.

I have the exact same problem and this didn't work for me. I am running the computer on battery, recharging, then running again.

Turning the power option off airplane mode did not owrk for me. It still will not charge will the computer is on, only when the computer is off or sleeping. Any other ideas?
