Power manager T560 Windows 10

2016-07-24, 18:09 PM

Hi,, I downloaded the power manager driver and the settings dependency pack. I see the files for power manager in Drivers/Win. But when I go to Programs and Features, Power Manager is not listed. When I right click on battery icon I don't have an "advanced" option.

So how do I run/ access the power manager so I can change my charging thresholds?

thanks in advance

Solved! See the solution

I have the same problem but at T450S. I called lenovo, and say, that I can't find any adv options for battery, it looks like there is no installed power manager, the same is active protection. For first I get ansver that my model is not compatible with windows 10,,,, after check in system, that there is win 10 licence, lenovo said, that they cen send me full recovery and that is only option to run it.
I wait week for penmdrive, install... and - nothing changed, no software lenovo is working. No acvite proitection, no power manager... no lenovo settings.

For Windows 10, you need to download and install "Lenovo Settings" from the Windows Store.

Inside this app is a "Power" section that contains the battery-related settings you are looking for.

I can get to the power settings but when I turn on "threshold" a little window pops up and asks me if I want to continue but when I click it, there is a little flicker and nothing happens.  I can't find where I can adjust it?
