Am trying to modify the alarms settings for the default power plan using the Power Manager. While it does not complain when I apply the values, the same is not getting reflected when I launch the power manager again.
It was working all along, I don't know what caused the issue. The power option that am trying to modify is "Energy saver". The default alarm is to hibernate the system when the batter reaches 5%. Am trying to put it to sleep instead of hibernate. It does not work.
Please let me know if I need to furnish more information or data in case this is not good enough to point me to a solution. But here is some data that I see in the Think Vantage software:
Power manager version: 3.66 (apparently the latest).
Thanks in advance,

Am not able to modify any of the preset options. So I tried creating one and setting a value that I wanted, but this one gets reset to a default value too.

Be sure you're logging in as Adminstrator. Sound like that could be the problem.

Thank you Tripplec, my login has administrator privilege, but I may have found a way out.
My modifications get honored when I use the Control Panel -> Power Options -> Edit plan settings. I was trying to make changes on the Power Manager directly. Although the tool did not complain when I made changes and 'applied', it got reset to the earlier (default) values. But with changes through control panel, the tool displays the values that I entered.
I probably should wait and see if the new values take effect during the real run, let me allow the battery to get discharged beyond the values I have set and observe if the alarm actions get honored.
