No. The Power Manger utility is not supported under Win 8.

Thank you. So how does the power management look like in Windows 8? The life of the battery will be shorter? The battery will be always charged when the AC adapter is plugged in, even if the baterry has 100%?

Magnum44pl: I suspect you haven't had an answer because the behaviour varies across the many Thinkpad models. My Tablet 2 (BIOS 1.31, Windows 8.1 Pro) starts charging as soon as I connect the AC adapter, even if it's at or near 100% charge (except for the random and rare occasion when it doesn't start charging, even though the battery is at ~50%)

With the loss of power manager in Windows 8.x is there any way to monitor the capacity of the batteries anymore?  We relied on this to know when we needed to replace them.

I see that, but all I get is a generic health update.  In Power Manager we got cycle count, design capacity, available capacity, etc.  It would be nice to be able to see that info.
