T430 Help Please How to Stop Running on Battery

2020-09-16, 12:45 PM

I know you all are gonna think I am stupid but I need help.

 

I just got a new ThinkPad T430 with Windows 10.

 

I was setting up my programs etc and fell asleep.

 

I have it plugged in so I do not use the battery at all.

 

When I woke up I had a screen there that said my Battery had 8% left.

 

Again it was plugged in and NOT "I THOUGHT" running on the battery, but the power cord.

 

I searched everywhere I could think of on the lap top to see where I would possible change a setting to stop it from using the battery or switch it to using the power cord only and not the battery and could find nothing.

 

Can someone please help me and tell me how to make it ONLY use the power cord plugged in the wall and NOT use the battery when I am operating it PLEASE.  I have had Lenovo Lap Tops for years and have never ran into this before.

 

Thank you for your time.

I just checked and my battery now shows 13% charged, but it says.....

 

Plugged in, not charging.

 

I am so confused.

 

I hope someone can help.
