If you want the nice green battery icon back you can install batterybarfree from http://batterybarpro.com/basic.php. Here is how it looks like:

Is it just a meter or it can control the charging threshold?

I once manged to install the power manager using windows compatibility features.


but later switched to windows 7 because of some other issues.

 

those who only need the power manager can try it.

Don't know if this thread is dead but there is Desktop Power Manager for Windows 8 on Lenovo's site:

 

http://support.lenovo.com/en_CA/downloads/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-70967

 

I installed it and it works !

pjg,

 

The page you referenced indicates this is only for ThinkCentres.  Is this what you installed it on, or are you saying this works with other Lenovo computers (like ThinkPads?).  FYI, I have a ThinkPad T530.

 

Thanks!

I am using Thinkpad T440p and I realize that Windows 8 has this:

 

http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/lenovo-settings/3078e868-a336-4a13-af40-8f37982cf591

 

I guess we can try installing this to manage the battery.

I tried to run the installation of the power manager 6.0something and it couldn't seem to load after the installation.
