2014-03-08, 11:13 AM

hello,


I has just upgraded my Thinkpad t440 from windows 7 to Windows 8.1 pro. But i could not find Power Manager software to install in my laptop. I want  this software to manage my battery to ensure that it stop charging when 80% capacity. I think that it is useful for my battery.

Regards,

Starting with Windows 8, the conventional Power Manager with charging thresholds is no longer officially offered.

Here's a third party tool to set what you need:

You still need to have the requisite power management drivers installed for it to function properly.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U

Thank for your information.

 

I followed as WSKO's instruction and work well on thinkpad x230 and thinkpad t440. We can apply this way until lenovo release new version software.

 

Regards,
