X220 - after clean win install, battery charger does not say "charging" or "not charging" any more.

X220 - after clean win install, battery charger does not say "charging" or "not charging" any more. On factory install it would say 'not charging' and drain battery below 100% until 95% or similar.

uninstall the Thinkvantage Power Manager and reinstall it. Also to make sure you install the Power Manager driver also.
