Fwiw, the same error message, "Power Manager has stopped working..." presents late in boot up on my tablet too. Running 64-bit Vista here. No solutions at this time. The problem seems to have started recently, after a series of Lenovo updates were installed.
Exact same case here!
Fix or an at least an answer? Really pessimistic here..

Yes, 64-bit Vista, the same error message at startup, and it started after I updated through the Lenovo updater process in ThinkVantage.
I haven't noticed any degradation in performance, but I'm still new to my X200 Tablet. Maybe I don't know any better..Is there any wa to reboot it manually?

Whenever I started the ThinkPad Power Manager application it used to crash more often than not (Vista 32 bit on X61 tablet). The fix for me was to:
Uninstall "ThinkPad Power Manager"
Uninstall "ThinkPad Power Management Driver"
Reinstall both of the above and reboot again.

Also having this problem on Vista64, and it started immediately after the current updates.
During the update process, I got a message that a file being copied was older than the current version (one of the cryptically-named TVXXXXXX.DLL files). I let it copy, since it was a part of the package being installed. Don't know if that was part of the problem, or not...
Ok, update on this problem: I found later that TV Productivity Center and the blue TV button were also hosed by the last updates. So, as Etch suggested, I unininstalled Productivity Center, Power Manager, and PM driver, rebooted, then let System Update reinstall the utilities. All is working now, no boot messages.
