Q: Win 10: cannot turn Off Battery Conservation mode ...

Hi! I just upgraded the U310 to Win10. The Battery Conservation mode was ON before the upgrade. After the upgrade it is still on. I installed the Lenovo Settings tool and tried to switched it off. After reboot all the options for Conservation have disappeared and it still won't charge above 59%. Please help, I'm stuck. WBR,Alex?

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.

Greetings, I have my Thinkpad P50 for a couple of months now. Earlier, I used to go to Lenovo battery settings and notice the conservation mode which charges the battery to a certain capicity in order to conserve it. Now I can not see that option anymore, I don't know what happened but it is not there anymore. I access the settings from the start menu or the battery strip in the taskbar. Any help is appreciated.

Hi, Lenovo Settings mentioned that it is better to set battery conservation mode to "ON" if most of the time I am my AC plugged in. May I know is this true? I have set this to ON but it will reset to OFF mode, when I on/off my AC. May I know how to save this setting? Kind Regards,Bayee

Hello, the issue with my Ideapad 700 (Windows 10, last update KB3176938, 1st of september) is that, even though I switch the battery conservation mode on, every time I restart or shut down the system it turns back to "off" like it's unable to save the setting. Any clue? Thanks

I recently purchased a ideapad 700 for home use. However, when the conservation mode is turned on, i noticed the notebook sometimes charged to 100% by itself without consent. Then I would have to disable the conservation mode, and then re-enable again the function so the battery would deplete its battery to 60%. This is not often happening everyday, but it did happened some often and it is annoying since it is wasting the charge cycle of the battery. Any help?

So I got my T460s a week ago. It was preloaded with Windows 7, where one could set the battery into conservation mode.This left the battery at a 50-60% charge when the computer is plugged in for long periods of time.In Windows 10 I can't find this option. I do have Lenovo Settings installed, but under battery there is no option to enable conservation mode. So how can I enable battery conservation mode?

Hi Everyone, I have a T510 which I have just upgraded to Window 10.  I have installed the 'Lenovo Settings' app and the other various components it prompted me to install and the app itself functions fine. However, I am wanting to set the battery charge level to 50% to conserve my battery lifespan, but I can't find where to do this.  I understand that it is normally under the battery option in Lenovo Settings and is now called 'Conservation Mode'.  Unforunately this option does not appear in this location on my laptop. Does anyone have any ideas about how I can resolve this issue? Thanks, Sam.

A:Conservation Mode

hi behrouz,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
This mode controls the Firmware that controls the battery,
   And yes it stops the charging when it reaches 60% to prevent over charging and lessen charge and discharge rate.
     This is most suggested for system that is always Plugged in to the Ac adapter,
 
Best Regards
Solid Cruver

My device: Lenovo 2013 IdeaPad Z400 Touch 20220OS: Windows 10Issue: Battery indicates "Plugged in and not charging"; it is at 0%; if I unplug the charger, it immediately shuts off. History:- I had a similar problem 3 months ago. After no issues for 4 years, my battery suddenly wouldn't charge higher than 50%, at which point it would indicate "Plugged in and not charging." I downloaded Lenovo Energy Management and changed the settings to "Optimal battery life". This fixed the problem.- I have since kept my battery in "Optimal battery health" mode, and I rarely used my laptop unplugged. The program says my battery health is "good"- Yesterday, I used my laptop unplugged, and it died without its usual warning. I plugged it in, left it for awhile, turned it on, and the battery had not charged at all, which has never happened before.  Fix attempts:- Went to Lenovo Energy Management and put it in "Optimal battery life", restarted computer; nothing.- Downloaded Lenovo Settings, my computer was NOT in conservation mode.- Tried to run the battery firmware update as suggested by Lenovo in this forum. I downloaded it, launched it, and it has not moved past the first step ("Welcome to the Lenovo Battery Firmware Update ToolNow configuring the program..."). The top corner indicates v00.65, even though I downloaded Version 1. I waited for hours, then exited, reinstalled the program, and the same issue is occuring.

I've had my Windows 10 Ideapad for about a month, and have had no problems with it.  This morning, when I turned it on, I got a message saying the battery needed to be charged and showed it was down to 10%.  I turned it off and plugged it in.  After 5+ hours, it will now not boot up at all.  The little light next to the plug is on and so is the one that is the system status indicator.  Aside from those 2 lights, there is nothing - no light, no sound, nada.  I tried holding the power button down for 30+ seconds - still nothing. Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated.

Hi, In the Lenovo Settings application when I toggle on the conservation mode for the battery, the battery should stop charging at around 60%. However, even though the conservation mode is toggled on, the battery will charge to 100% and stay at 100%. The icon near the battery usually would indicate whether the AC adapter is plugged in by showing a plug and if you would toggle conservation mode, this AC adapter plug would change into a leaf. However now it is always a leaf, whether I the conservation mode is on or off.  I appreciate all suggestions.

Hi everyone Since the last Windows 10 update on 11th Apr 2017, I have had two problems that I assume are related:1. The fan is constantly on, despite normal CPU usage of around 10-15%2. I can no longer turn off conservation mode, so that now I cannot charge the battery above 60%. I tried uninstalling the Lenovo Energy Management software, and installing Lenovo Settings, but the conversation mode toggle in the latter also makes no difference. The sum of both of these problems is that now my battery runs down much faster... Any help most welcome! Chris

Has anyone else's Lenovo Battery Power Conservation Mode stopped working? I have a Lenovo FLEX 5-1570 and Conservation Mode recently stopped functioning. Everything else appears to be working fine but now when I have my laptop plugged in, it charges to 100% and remains there. I've tried turning Conservation Mode off and back on. I've tried rebooting. I've tried reinstalling the BIOS and Chipset software. None of these fix the problem. The worst part is Lenovo "support". Lenovo hardware support is completely separate from Lenovo software support and they do not talk to one another. Lenovo hardware support provided no support other than suggesting trying to reinstall the BIOS and Chipset updates. (My best guess is their latest BIOS update created the problem.) Lenovo software support will not provide support for their own software, even though the laptop is under warranty, without paying extra for it! Knowing this now, I will never buy another Lenovo product.

In Windows: Shows as "Plugged in - Not Charging".2. Turned off: When computer is left plugged in and turned off it will charge fine.  I have tried:1. In Vantage:  Does not state that the Conservation Mode is enabled, and I have tried toggling this back and forth while plugging and unplugging the charger - No change.2. I rolled back to "Lenovo Settings" and used it in Flightmode (so that it would not ask me to switch to Vantage), to no avail. The setting there too is off, and toggling it back and forth do not change anything. AFAIK, it is only Dell and Lenovo that ship computers with this kind of software, and since I have a fresh installation of Windows, and it charges when I have it shut-off; This must be Lenovo Software Related. I can even sense it is some kind of software, because immediately after boot it still shows that it is actually charging, but suddenly it stops. Probably after loading some of the Lenovo services. I am at a loss.
