hi Reichtofer,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
Try opening Control Panel / Uninstall a program and uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management / Power Management Software,
   Restart the system if prompted.
 
 
Now download and install this
     Lenovo Power Management Driver  
 
If  after the installation you were able to see a shortcut icon on your desktop,
    try navigating Crogram Files or Program Files x86 
            now look for Lenovo Folder and It shouldbe located there.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

I was missing a driver for an Unknown Device, and the Hardware ID showed up as:

ACPI\PNP0700
*PNP0700

It's parent device was the Intel 82801EB LPC Interface Controller. So I figured I was missing the Power Management Controller. I look in the drivers included with Vista and all that was on hand was the Intel 82371EB Power Management Controller. I attempted to use this driver, and there are no errors, but I really don't think that's correct.

Interestingly, my last Vista installation did not exhibit this issue. I wonder if anyone who has an HP xw8200 (with ANY OS installed) can tell me what driver is used for this device (most likely the power management controller).

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.

i'm running windows 10, 64bit, up to date on Windows updates, about a year ago i had an incompability problem with the Intel(R) management engine interface driver, i tired everything, rolling it back, update it, uninstall and re-install, every troubleshooting option and i read so many articles, even windows defender acknowledge the problem but can't fix it with no use
i tried fixing it with a Microsoft support agent before and with the remote desktop help, Cortana had a problem too he fixed it, but the driver he said the there is nothing we could do about it because it's just an incompatible update and that we should just wait for the correct update to come in.Ever since then my laptop do crazy things on sleep, hibernate and shutdown, so i was only finding some workarounds the problem, the sleep mode when it wake up it restart so i switched to hibernating, the new things happens now when i shut down it, it opens weird now like, the keyboard lights up then lights down and the power bottom the same, then either they just stop and i have to hit the power button again or they lights of for seconds and everything runs normalNow i just experiened a bluescreen restart because of it, anyone could advise me on a solution?RegardsNada

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned.  Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. I've done so, be it doesn't seem to have helped. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode.  At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops.  Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Hi. If i change in Windows 10 in Power Management from Balanced to Power Saver is this safe for graphic card?
I change from Balanced to Power Saver and fps in benchmark went from 180fps to 50fps. Is there any hardware related changes due to swap from Balanced to Power Saver ?

A:Windows Power Management - Power Saver - is this safe for graphic card

Power Saver attempts to save power by reducing the CPU’s speed all the time and lowering screen brightness, among other similar settings and that may account for your fps drop when benchmarking. Doesn't sound like a good choice for your purposes.

The link to the faulty download file is here: http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-y-series-laptops/y40-70-noteboo... I know my battery gauge problem has to do with a driver in the device manager called "Lenovo ACPI-Compliant Virtual Power Controller." Sadly I haven't found a way to disable this thing in Windows 10. If Lenovo has an incompatible driver on their systems, the least they can do is provide software for Windows 10 that will remedy the situation. They've got me running in circles.

Greetings friends.
We still do have 30 Windows XP Computers in our Network which are not in domain. Yes we're migrating slowly towards windows 7.
Recently we have standardized our computer settings to be 10 minutes of inactivity to turn off screen and 20 minutes of inactivity to sleep. It was really tedious to go to each and every computer change the settings manually.
So i made a batch file to implement the standard settings created in one of the xp machines
"powercfg /export powerStd /file filename.
Now to invoke that batch file a NORMAL account allow in xp to change the powercfg.
When i do runas /u:administrator "powerStd.bat, The power settings are created instead for the administrator user.
I hope i clearly mentioned my problem.

Hi all.

I have built a new computer system for my parents and am having some annoying power management problems.

The system specs are:
Asus M4A7TD USB3
Athlon II x4 640
4GB RAM DDR31600
Ati Radeon 4350 1Gb

All drivers and BIOS are up to date.

The annoyances stem from the fact that when the system is powered down from Windows, the machine keeps power through the LAN Port and USB bus, keeping lights on the mouse, keyboard and card reader which is a problem for my parents. I realise that this is normal, and - I believe - so the computer can be woken up?

However, BIOS option for 'wake on LAN/KB/Mouse/USB' etc is all disabled.

There is a setting for energy savings requirement EuP, which when enabled, over rides all other settings, and when this EuP setting is selected and the computer is turned off, all power is switched off, and no lights are left on.

However, if EuP is active, and I set the computer to sleep in Windows 7, there is no way to wake the machine up from sleep other than killing power to the PSU. The power button flashes on and off but does nothing when you press it. Nothing happens with keyboard or mouse action.

However, with EuP disabled, sleep works as it should from Windows.

Is there something I'm missing?

Many thanks.

I've recently upgraded from windows vista home to windows 7 ultimate. I've experienced some issues with "sudden" and "random" display closures. To put it simply, the screen goes black (not completely, there's still a slight glow of grey as opposed to completely shut off) and I cannot see my mouse or anything. If i try to input a key stroke, a sound sometimes appears. I've adjusted my power settings to not turn off in ANY situation and the problem still persists.

Then I tried changing the "Processor power management" and changed maximum to 5% (minimum is also 5% originally) as opposed to 100% in the default setting. This seemed to fixed the constant sudden and random black screens but I'm afraid this has decreased my laptop's performance.

These are the specs and I hope someone can tell me what was wrong and how I can go back to a high performance setting without experiencing sudden screen outages.

I recently built a new computer (Intel mobo, Core 2 Duo quad-core, 4GB RAM) and installed the Windows 7 beta (32-bit).

One issue that I have observed seems to be related to power management. After about a half-hour of non-use, the computer seems to go into sleep mode. The screen shuts down, all the fans stop, and the hard drive and power lights go out. It then sits there for about a minute like this, and then, for no reason that I can see, it powers back up again. The fans rev up, the lights come on, the screen takes on a glow (though nothing is displayed), etc.

After a few minutes, it powers down again. After another minute, it powers back up. This cycle seems to go on indefinitely.

Does anone have any idea what might be causing this or what I might do to determine what the problem is? I have never seen anything like this before.

Thanks!

I just got an E540 and upon a Windows install, after updating the AHCI driver, the screen glitches out (crazy colors, lines, etc) and the system locks up. After a reboot, during Windows startup, the screen glitches out again and it completely powers off. System restore removes the driver and restores the ability to boot.
I've installed the driver from both Lenovo and a newer one from Intel and get the same result.
Windows has the driver already and I'm not opposed to leaving it the way it is, I'm just really wondering about this issue and would like to eventually update.
This happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, by the way.

Thanks in advance!

Good morning, SF and BSOD teams:

I've been suffering from random BSODs on my Lenovo V570 laptop running Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit on numerous occasions. This issue currently springs up at seemingly-random times, although there might be some correlation with me trying music-related activities (e.g. opening WinAmp, Google Play Music, etc.). The on-screen BSOD information consistently mentions power management driver, hence the reference in this post's title.

Some history with this laptop: I purchased it new in Sept 2011 - no issues
Shortly thereafter, I installed Ubuntu with a full disk wipe, re-format, and re-partition
After frustrations with Linux, I reinstalled Win 7 with a freshly-purchased retail full license (e.g. not the OEM recovery disk)
Note: it was after this event that the BSODs started to occur
I've since reinstalled Linux and Win 7 at least one or two times, each time with a full disk wipe/format/re-partition and seemingly successful installation.

One additional note: during each of the Win 7 installs, it seems as though virtually none of the expected drivers are available. I have to manually install ethernet, wi-fi, graphics, etc. before the thing starts behaving as expected. Again, this was all using the legitimate retail full Win 7 install disk and drivers directly from Lenovo's support site.

In any event, I would greatly appreciate any help on this issue.

Thanks!

He there,
I found a couple of similar threads, but I could not solve my problem yet.
Since a bought this laptop almost a year ago I have random system chrashes with a "Driver Power State Failure".
Sometimes it seems especially when I use lots of programms at the same time and always when the computer automatically goes to "sleep" or "poer save mode" (or when I close the lid).
What can I do to solve the problem or where is the problem exactly?

Kind regards
Dschi

Hi folks,

for a few weeks I am experiencing a strange problem with my Lenovo L420 laptop running on Win7 x64. Generally it runs pretty smoothly under normal circumstances. I had no problems with week-long uptimes before.
However, from time to time when the computer automatically goes to "sleep" or "power save" mode (or when I close the laptop lid) it freezes with a "Driver Power State Failure" BSOD.

One observation is that this problem is apparently correlated to memory load and/or system load. In fact, the BSOD is more likely to occur the more programs or browser tabs are open in that very moment.

Here is my PC information:
Windows 7 64 Bit
What was original installed OS on system? Windows 7 64 But
Age of system (hardware) - Bought in sept '11, according to the label its July '11
Age of OS installation, have you re-installed the OS? - Sept '11, no

CPU - Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10GHz
Video Card - onboard Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
MotherBoard - Intel HM65
Power Supply - Sorry, no idea
System Manufacturer - Lenovo
Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom) - please check attached picture

I attached the last several crash dumps.

My own personal analysis of these dumps did not lead to any consistent finding. To me (as a relative uneducated computer guy) it seems that in each crash a different driver is causing the problem... A google search turned out some people with similar problems, but to date I ... Read more

In every case your Realtek NIC (network controller) seems to be causing the problem, with the exception being the latest two crashes, which blame your wifi. They may be interfering with each other. Make sure to update the drivers for both. They are dated from June/April.

Hi Everyone,This is getting pretty specific, but I'm hoping there is another random online teacher using the Canvas Learning Management System with a Lenovo laptop who has some insight on this.  I have been in touch with Canvas support, and we have figured out the problem seems isolated to Lenovo laptops, hence my inquiry here. Here is the problem: Canvas recently switched from a document viewer and grading system called crocodoc to its own propriety document viewer.  After this change, the documents when viewed through the system have fuzzy text (like a bad scanned pdf or a typewriter with ribbon ink bleed).  See attached sample screen shots for old system (clear) and new system (blurry). I'm wondering whether this problem is related somehow to the Windows 10 Intel Graphics driver update issues that was prevalent this spring (see a link here on this).  If so, is there a fix? I know this is a long shot (dealing with a specifical laptop model and a specific learning management system function) but heck...I thought I would try.  I figure someone is boiling in record heat and stuck inside eager for a technical challenge ;-). ML
