And W530 can still work for 8h on battery with Windows 8.1? And if I have a fully charged battery and plug in the AC, then the battery will not be charged, or it will (and will be dying too)?

I have "Power Manager" working just fine on my E431 with windows 8!  I downloaded the latest version for windows 7.  When I installed it it didn't finish but gave an error.  I located the setup pogram with files explorer, right clicked on it and selected compatability mode for win 7 then ran it.   It's been working just fine since. I'm about to see if it survives the update to 8.1.  Update, it's still working under win 8.1, even after all the updates.

Done it. It INSTALLED cleanly!!! I'm gonna restart my computer and check whether it starts and works ok.

 

A small tip: after you download the installation file, right click on it and select "troubleshoot compatibility" or the option with the closest equivalent wording, and click the appropriate buttons. It'll take care of the compatibility issues you'll encounter during installation.

 

You guys ROCK!!

 

P.S. Lenovo, we really could use a Thinkpad Power Manager for Windows 8. It's one of a handful of preloaded Thinkvantage software that drew me to Thinkpads in the 1st place. Please get one out.

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.


you can get this, and a whole lot more by executing "powercfg /batteryreport" (without the quotes) in Command Prompt run as Administrator...
