Power Manager settings missing after upgrade to SSD

2008-10-23, 11:46 AM

I have upgraded my X200 with a SSD for testing and some of my settings from the Power Manager disepeared. I have only one scheme present: Power Source Optimized.

I cannot create any new scheme, ither in Power Manager or in the Power Options control panel.

 

I upgraded to Power Manager 1.47, latest driver, etc..

Still same issue.

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks

I just had the same problem, and Lenovo has not been of any help.  They told me to install power manager.  But upgrading to the latest power manager is exactly what caused my settings to disappear.  Did you ever find a solution?

It may be intentional that the SSD removes your power manager, for the following reason:

 

I have a Lenovo X-200 running windows 7 and I just installed an Intel 25-M SSD.  When I run Intel's SSD toolbox I see that my computer never shuts down the drive safely.  The computer is supposed to warn the SSD that it is going to turn off power, and not doing so can cause data loss.

 

So perhaps your SSD intentionally disabled a misbehaving power manager to prevent you from having the problem I'm having.

 

Lenovo's tech support is worse than useless on this issue. Intel tech support says to contact lenovo.  I will probably just throw the SSD in the trash and order an old-style hard drive. :(
