Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

Was working for me at first, now charge going to 100%.

 

I didn't change anything that I know, and the registry still shows the limits as I set them.  I don't really know how to troubleshoot this.

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

You have to do it this way (change threshold in two places)

If the keys mentioned above do not exist, just create it. After editing registry, turn off the laptop, unplug battery, plug it again and it should start working.

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

I don't have the key with a battery serial number under Data.  Data itself has most of the keys displayed there in his screenshot.

 

So, do I create the battery number key and create the start and stop keys there under it, or do I just modify the existing keys under data?  Is the battery number key essential?

 

This is what I have.

 

Note no other folders under the top level Data.

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

Update. 

 

The battery serial number key appeared after a shutdown.  I think that the creation of the start and stop threshold keys in the \data folder creates the SN key, but the PC has to be shut down for this to happen.

 

Anyway, I was going to experiment with the second part of entering the keys as described in the linked thread, and to my surprise, there was the SN key before I even did anything.  I created the keys as described and that was it.  Starts at 60, stops at 80, as I specified.

 

Thanks for the link and tutorial.

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

This version doesn't work on my T530. It freezes on startup. And now I cannot get rid of it. It's still there after uninstall. Bummer!

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

Use system restore to fix this.

did you uninstall the previous version before you installed the newer version?

Re: Power Manager for Windows 10?

I didn't, because it didn't work. Smiley Happy I thought maybe upgrade will fix it, but it didn't. It uninstalled, was not listed under installed programs anymore, yet it was still there. But I got it working by installing Lenovo Settings - Power.

 

EDIT: Ok, I wasn't totally fair there with my first message. Previous version would not uninstall either.
