power manager shortcuts to change power plans

2021-03-22, 0:27 AM

Power manager is a great tool but to change the power plan you need to run the program. Even right clicking on the icon in the taskbar does not show anything more related than switching on the airplane mode. You can see the designers did get an idea but did not fully exploit it.

 

Is there a way to change the power plan with a shortcut?

 

There is a method described here

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/21990-power-plan-create-shortcut-change-power-plan.html

 

but it does not work on Lenovo's power manager's power plans. It invokes only plans created via windows system. 

 

Thinkpad x230, windows 7

 

Thanks

Hello karate,

 


Greetings
I suggest that you share the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.
 
Update us soon as convenient

 


Regards,

Hello karate,

 


Sorry for the late response.

 

I wasn't able to find any ways or work around for shortcuts
Hopefully incoming updates will include one

 

Best regards,

That's okay, thanks for trying. I ended up using the default 3 settings and it turns out to be very useful.
