20BS X1 power manager crashes in Windows 10

2015-08-03, 11:45 AM

After upgrading a clean machine (newly arrived Win 7) to Windows 10, the power manager crashed. I installed the latest power management driver (1.67.10.15) but still crashes.

 

I want to control battery charging among other things, I know there is a registry hack, but my user can't do that.

Solved! See the solution

Same happened with my T540p after upgrading from W7, I also had some error messages because e not compatible .dll and/or the battery gauge. Did a clean install of W10 after that, at least the Lenovo Companion & Settings apps recognize my battery, however no possibility of any battery management settings.

Shouldn't be hard to fix when Lenovo get around to it, since they published an updated power management driver, the app should be easy to fix

Power Manager is not supported on Windows 10.  It is for Windows 7 only.  Lenovo recommends that you uninstall Power Manager on Windows 10.  There will not be any bug fixes for crashes that happen on Windows 10.

 

Note that this statement is only about Power Manager, which is the software that has the battery gauge.

Power Management Driver is different and it's still supported on Windows 10.

And how does one set the battery saver to only charge to 50% on Windows 10 if Lenovo provides no power app?

Please see what I wrote here:  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-10/Power-Manager-for-Windows-10/m-p/2129075#M794

 

It is the same situation as Win8 and Win8.1

Battery charge thresholds can be managed via registry keys if Lenovo PM driver is installed. At least, this solution works for x1c gen3 under win8.1.
