Preferred Solution: Option Missing to Calibrate battery in Lenovo Vantage App.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Guys, I've tried to read available info on that option (including Lenovo info) however without clue.So is it doing sth for t460s? Because as I understand it is doing nothing. We don't have 'Rapid Start Technology' option in BIOS and after setting custom hibernation after sleep time this option is doing nothing? (so could be switched off? - anyway it is a little strange that Lenovo Vantage doesn't sense if the option is vaild or not for a given model)

My latop is the X1 Carbon 2018 with HDR wide color gamut screen.After Lenovo Vantage update, the new version of Vantage is missing some features, including the Color settings.In the latest version Lenovo Vantage , the color settings were canceled. Since my color settings have been modified  accidentally, I want to adjust it back through Lenovo Vantage and find that there are no related options. Is there any solution?PS: I have tried to download the old version of Lenovo Vantage, but I found that the old version of the settings can not find the color settings also after Lenovo Vantage update.

Beware the Lenovo Vantage app. My PC (Carbon X1 gen 6) started to auto wake up every weekday morning at 05:30 from hibernate, even when I was away on holiday. I had a frustrating time trawling through scheduled tasks, power plan settings and device power settings, all to no avail. The powercfg sleep study and wake timer diagnostics did not help either - it just said unknown wake reason. The culprit? It's Lenovo's own app - Lenovo Vantage. There is a (new?) feature called Smart Standby that automatically set itself to ON. This automatically wakes your computer every weekday at 05:30 ready for work. It must save all of 10 seconds start up on my laptop. I've turned it off and hurrah, the PC stays hibernated. Also it fixes another issue - I found that the "Hibernate After" time setting was being changed from my value. Yes, Lenovo Vantage was silently zapping that too. So beware this dangerous app. Shame on Lenovo for turning this feature on by default and not explaining its consequences better.

Hello together, I'm using a new Thinkpad L380 for about 4 weeks and have been experiencing battery drain issues when off since the first day.After all possible corrections found on this forum (Bios Update, Win10 QuickStart, Managment Foundation... and some more) it now comes down to a final observation:When I shut down the computer and the battery threshold in Lenovo Vantage is off, it will keep its charge for two or more days without loosing a single percent of battery charge.If I shut off the computer with battery threshold activated (e.g. after using it at a docking station), the charge will decrease by approx. 6% every 12 hours, so after a weekend without use more than 30% of the battery charge has disappeared. I was very surprised to find out, that this for sure is the only remaining issue, but I can repeat it over and over again and everytime I deactivate the battery threshold function, my battery will keep its charge when shut down. Is there any solution or improved Lenovo Vantage functionality (current is 4.12.13) known or to be expected to solve this issue? Thank you for any helpful reply

I am using Lenovo Vantage on my T580 to  enable charging limit to 80% (on both batteries - I have normal 24Wh secondary pack). Today, I wanted to charge my laptop to 100% because I am going on trip without AC, so I disabled battery limiter feature in Lenovo Vantage, but only secondary (removable) battery charged to 100%. Internal battery stay on 80%.  This seems like major software bug. Only way to resolve it (kinda) right now is to remove removable battery and set limit to 100% in Lenovo Vantage. Even after doing this, my internal battery stopped charging at 97% (battery icon no longer have animation of charging) and I am getting 1% per hour. After 3 hours of charging without second battery I am still on 98% So how am I supposed to charge both my batteries to 100% now? Is this some kind of joke in addition to MX150 throttling problems?This model really starting to piss me off... PS: BIOS and all recommended drivers are up to date. Checked today.

Hello!I'm having really weird problem with Lenovo Vantage app. Pretty much all the features concerning the battery turn off on it's own after like 30sec to 1min from launching them.I've aquaired E470 just recently, got fresh installation of Windows 10, installed all the useful drivers and on the end I installed the Lenovo Vantage app. I wanted to set some battery threshold but I couldn't get it working - it has been turning itself down all the time after like minute or so - I did what it asked me to do - I drained the battery below the wanted threshold but it didn't help. Although I manged somehow (even when it turned off in app) to get 80% threshold but after a week or so without using the laptop when I tried to get it work again it didn't.The second thing is that the battery gauge reset also turns off itself after a minute or so - without any message. I updated the BIOS but I didn't test it yet - I'm draining the battery right now to check the threshold.

I have saved a T60p, a T61 and a W510 from scrapping, partly replaced battery, CPU, RAM and changed to a SSD and successfully installed Windows 10 x64 version 1709 onto them. As least the T61 and W510 are now quite useful.Then I remembered that Thinkpads did have a Power Manager for Windows 7, and found that for Windows 10 Lenovo Vantage from the Windows Store seems to be the best option. Unfortunately, since installing Vantage, after hibernating Windows 10, the battery drains about 20% over 24 hours, and I have not found any explanation for that.Interestingly, the battery does not drain after hibernating when:o) I remove and reinsert the battery for a few secondso) power on, booting into Ubuntu and doing a shutdowno) I do a shutdown instead of hibernatingI really would like use Vantage to define a charging threshold from about 40% to 80% to enhance the life of the (new) batteries, but the described significant draining during hibernation is unacceptable. Does anyone know a solution for this problem (3 different laptops experience the same problem, even when just installing Windows 1709 and Vantage)? Thanks a lot!

Hi, my P1 has been doing this since I got it. Installed the latest Power Management driver and hoped it would be fixed as the release notes indicated a similar issue was addressed (but for Windows 7). No luck. When I click the battery maximizer gauge, the menu pops up for a nanosecond then is gone. I tried the solution in here https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Vantage-Knowledge-Base/How-to-fix-Lenovo-Vantage-Toolbar-Battery... and it worked initially but then the behavior returned. It's only a minor annoyance ... but it would be nice to fix.

My Camera isn't working. I cannot change the privacy setting because my Lenovo Vantage camera settings are missing. So are the drivers for my Camera. F8 doesn't do anything (just keeps showing "no camera" icon)I suspect this has to do with an update pushed on 2/13. Even before this, my camera would randomly switch back to privacy setting "on" whenever Lenovo pushed an update.

Hi, I do have a really annoying issue with the Battery Gauge in the taskbar.My Taskbar is set up to autohide.Everytime the percentage in the Battery Gauge drops (not tested during charging so far) to the next figure (e.g. 80% to 79%) the taskbar appears for a second and hides after that. This is super annoying because it shifts the focus away from any window I am working in.ßEspecially if I write something I type and nothing happens, sometimes the cursor does not even focus in the window I was in after the taskbar autohides again. I did test to disable "Battery related messages" but no luck.I did unpin the battery gauge from the taskbar and never had this issue again so I assume that this is caused by the Lenovo Vantage app. Current "Lenovo Vantage" app version is: 4.27.32.0 Is this a know issue?Any ideas how to fix this and still keep the battery gauge in the taskbar? Thank you very much.

In this first screenshot of Lenovo Vantage running under Windows 10 (64) on my X1 Yoga (1st generation), please notice where it says that I need to install Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105.  However, in the second screenshot, please notice where the Installation History shows that Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 was successfully installed already. Everytime I boot up and run Lenovo Vantage to check for updates, it tells me that I need Sierra Wireless EM7455 Software - 10 (64), version 7.47.4743.0105 so I let it install it. Everytime I install it, the installation appears to be successful and my computer reboots, but then after rebooting, Lenovo Vantage again tells me that (1) I need it, (2) I already have it. This is crazy.  In the third screenshot (looking at Windows Device Manager) I see the Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A. The fourth screenshot shows that it is disabled.  I will enable this and then retry to install the updated. I'll report back in a second posting on this thread whehter it works.  (I would leave this posting open and finish it later, but I'm afraid it woud all be lost when I reboot).

After another reboot, Lenovo Vantage no longer show that this needs to be updated.  I'm no programmer, but it seems to me that the Lenovo Vantage update program ought to be able to see whether a driver is disabled and to tell the user to enable it in order to allow successful of updating of the driver.

Hi! Does anyone know what is the format of the date in the field "(battery) Manufacture Date" informed by Lenovo Vantage (Hardware Configuration > Energy)? It seems not to follow Windows setting. In my case, it is set to Brazilian Portuguese DD/MM/YYYY, but there is not a leading "0" in the returned value (see attached image).

Hi
This is a HP 6720s notebook. I'm having problems with my battery.

The percentage indicator is not accurate.

It randomly hibernates below 40%. It's only supposed to do that when it's on 5%. It's supposed to give a "low battery" warning on 10% but it never does that.
Do I need to calibrate the battery? If so what's the best method to do that? Do I need to run it until it's completely empty?

A:Calibrate battery

With most modern batteries you really don't need to "calibrate" them anymore. Having said that.... I do mine about once every six weeks or so, but only if I remember. My battery is over a year and a half old now and gets used on a regular basis. It still charges to 100% so I guess I'm doing something right

I run mine till it turns off by itself or gets to less than 10%, then charge it completely. Or did until recently I should say. I've been running it down to around 50% and then recharge it to full now. No ill effects yet to the "new" routine.

I have a free program that includes a battery monitor .... but I am not on my machine at this moment so cannot recommend/remember what it was/is. Thinking it was primarily a HDD type program. Having said that I have never used it for the battery.

One last thought, have you considered running an sfc/scannow to find and possibly repair any corrupted system files? This may or may not help this specific problem but cannot hurt and may be worth a try. We have many excellent tutorials here written by some very talented people. Just click the link :SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps.

Hi, I want to calibrate my battery laptop. When I check critical battery action, I cannot find 'Do Nothing' (only three options: Sleep, Shut down, Hibernate). In order to calibrate, I need the battery to fully drained (I mean till 0%, because I cannot change Critical battery Level (5%), after my battery is 5% left, my laptop will hibernate). What must I do to drain my battery laptop fully?

hello all, the laptop has a problem that the battery is not calibrated properly. when, according to windows, there is still about 50% of capacity left, the laptop shuts down immediatly. However the runtime up until that moment is still about the same as the original runtime. Thus I figured I needed to calibrate the battery. I,ve run the HP diagnostics utility to check the battery condition and it told me to replace the battery, without the option to calibrate it. One thing i noticed, was that the reported full charge capacity was way higher than the original capacity. About 66% higher. I then used the manual way to calibrate the battery from here: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04700771I even had to run the extended hard disk test twice to drain the battery completelyAfter the battery drained, I charged it fully without touching the laptop. I then ran the diagnostics utility again. Still the same result. As you can see in the attached photo, the reported full charge capacity and remaining capacity are way higher than the 4400mAh original design capacity.  So I still believe the battery is OK but the callibration is way out. Any thoughts from you, on what i can try/do before actually replacing the battery as runtime is still very good. Thanks,Jona

A:Notebook battery calibration wrong, but cannot calibrate

Your notebook battery is three years old.  It is time to replace it with a new compatible battery.  There is only so long that a battery will be serviceable.  Three years is a pretty good service life for a battery. Are you aware that there is only a one year warranty on notebook batteries, regardless of manufacturer?

Basic issue: Battery is charging to 86% and now only lasts a half hour. It reports "Plugged in, not charging" on A/C power even after being plugged in with the computer shut down for 5 hours. Installed HP Support Assitant. The Battery report says that it is OK. The Design Capacity is shown as 4000mah. It says that Full Charge Capacity is 2152 mah (53%) and reports that the Remaining Capacity is 1855 mah. Note that this is the 86% i.e. 2152/1855. Shouldn't the charge capacity be 4000mah? Does this indicate that the battery is down to half life? What exactly is "Full Charge Capacity"?   It only lasts a half hour, so that is WAY below half capacity, which it seems to be saying is still there. Is there some way to recalibrate the battery and get it to fully charge?  I searched here and found some links to "recalibrate your battery" but they all just lead to support.hp.com. If I search from there, I just go in an endless loop.

As a battery ages it loses the ability to reach full charge capacity. It also dies faster when on battery power only.Calibrating may help some but don't expect miracles:http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00821536#AbT3
