Battery conservation mode issue on ideapad 700

Q: Battery conservation mode issue on ideapad 700

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?

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

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!I have one questionIf I keep my laptop connected to the A/C and turn the Conservation Mode on (and get fully charged to the 60%) would the laptop be consuming energy from the battery or from the AC power?I mean, I bought this laptop about 3 months ago (IDEAPAD 310-15ABR) I used to have an HP with a removable battery and since I'm almost always sitted on a desk, I kept the laptop pluged and with no battery (I removed the battery), I wanted to do the same with this one but it doesn't have a removable battery.What I would like to know is if I keep my Lenovo connected and with the coservation mode on, is it ok? would it affect the battery at some point? keeping it pluged when its fully charged means it is working with the AC power and not with the battery power? Thank you!

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.

Hello,I have a problem with conservation mode of my 320-15ABR Laptop (Ideapad) (Win 10).In practice, I can no longer turn off the conservation mode by Lenovo Companion. When I connect the charger, the battery is always connected but not charging, even if the conservation mode is turned off. I tried downloading "power and management" drivers but the situation remained the same. I also installed energy management once and it worked but then when I tried to install it again it opens a command prompt window for a few seconds without running the same commands. How can I fix it? I'm waiting for your answer.Thank you

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.

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.

Hey,To begi, I have 2 problems since I bought this notebook about 2 weeks ago1- The performance is so poor    I am running Windows 10 and what I can notice is the bad performance from such an i7 processor @2.7 to 2.9 Ghz with 8 GB RAM(DDR4) and Nvidia Geforce 920MX(2GB)once I remove the AC Adapter and run it on the battery it tends to be slower and even when plugged in it's still giving me like the minimal performance, I have another laptop which is processor i5 @2.3 Ghz , 4 GB of RAM(DDR3), Intel Graphics Card(1GB) and it is running at much higher speed and I have tested this on some game and the i5 PC gave me a Higher FPS(90+) while the Ideapad gave me something around 60So, is it because some kind of factory settings for the lowest performance ever on that PC as I want to change it? Please give me a decent Solution for that problem as I can't work on the Ideapad this way.....2- Since I bought this laptop and I am using it regularly so I wanted to limit the battery usage to increase its lifespan so I have download Lenovo settings and Companion to Activate the Conservation Mode but It never worked, It never limited the battery to 60% and the battery still goes to completion....So I need a solution for thatThanks in advance.

Hello, I'm having an issue that's been bothering me since a couple of days ago. During the first month, my 1.5 month old YOGA 520 14IKB battery icon displayed 8-9 hours when fully charged. However, I had to work with the laptop plugged in for a while, so I activated the conservation mode. It charged the battery up to 60% and then stopped it. I use that configuration for about 2 weeks and then some days ago I disabled the conservation mode in order to have more juice while unplugged. However, now the estimate time for the battery to run out reduced drastically to about... 3hours!!! I tried to discharge it until 5% and the charge to 100% but that didn't fix it... I also read that could be a problem of outdated drivers but all my drivers are up to date (according to the Lenovo site). There are, however, updates for the graphics cards on Intel and NVIDIA sites, but the Intel tool says that Lenovo has a custom driver for the UHD 620 and probably that is also the case with NVIDIA. Could anyone, by chance, give me any tip on how I can restore my battery time? Thank you.

Hi,  I got this laptop just a day ago and switched it on with connection to A/C Power. As per instructions, I charged the battery for 2 hours, but after that the laptop overheated and it won't turn on. I assumed it might be because the battery is still in ship mode, so let the battery completely drain and connected to A/C power outlet and switched it on again. Now, since yesterday, the laptop only switches on after the battery is completely drained and on a/c power connection. This laptop has the battery built-in, so removing the battery is not an option. Please help. Oh Also, I did press the Novo button, but it didn't solve the problem.

I've turned on "conservation mode" in Vantage. That means, my laptop will be charged  to maximum 65%. Sometimes I take it off the charger but not fully charged than later take it on back and it will be again charged only to 65%. The question is, should I charge it fully sometimes to save the batterylife after i used it without charger  or it does not matter ?

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

I bought my Ideapad Z510 in March 2014, its Windows 8.1. Last few days it shows "battery is weak, needs to be replaced". The battery does not charge, I have to power through AC cable, whenever I disconnect AC, its power is gone. In order to fix the problem, I did the following taks:1. I removed MIcrosoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, and also Microsoft AC Adapter from Battery option. But after restarting the laptop, those options always reinstalled automatically without notifying. When I open Device Manager, those options are always there though those are removed and laptop is restarted.2. I reset the Gauge, but nothing happened.  I cannot understand why Lenovo provides such a poor quality battery. It is gone after 1 year!!! I cannot believe it! I have 10 years old DELL laptop and still I can use that battery for an hour. But my new Lenovo's battery has gone just after 1 year! Its a shame. Lenovo should respond about explanation that why they provide such poor quality battery. Any idea about resolving it?

A:ideapad Z510 "battery weak" issue

I have the same issue, bought the laptop around march of last year, and started experiencing the problems during the start of June.  I've seen many topics with this issue, with the same response from Mods and Admins. It's basically a substandard battery issue, and the only solution Lenovo gives us is to replace the battery (which are expensive with the relative cost of the laptop), and that doesn't even give us assurance that this issue will not happen again in a year or so. Very disappointing.

Like many forum members I suffered with battery problems with the IdeaPad. I tried everything from re-loading the operating system all the way to changing the fuse in my wall socket and every other tweak in-between. Still the problem persisited, battery drain and then no charge possible. The solution when it came was beytond simple and Lenovo gets no credit for highlighting this problem or helping it's users.
 
The problem is this. In most battery plans for the IdeaPasd the default is for the 'sleep' mode when the IdeaPad is not being used (idle). Problem is sleep mode still uses battery power, abiet at a trickle. Still, left for several hours or over night the battery will drain and the user gets a 1% power reading when booting up and the battery won't charge.
 
The fix is the battery plan 'Stable Mode'. This plan does not let the IdeaPad go into sleep mode with it's battery draining drawback. Once I selected sleep mode I now have a fully charged battery when I start using the IdeaPad. If I am on battery, of course, it drains the battery down but the dreaded sleep mode doesn't kick in to flatten the battery to a state where charging is not possible.
 
Hope this helps.

Hughdal,
 
Thanks for sharing your findings with others - sounds like a good work around solution.
 
I'm not sure which model IdeaPad you experienced these symptoms on.   Generally, I would recommend checking for battery firmware updates (which may be available for some models) and also checking for later versions of energy management software.  
 
If anyone else is experiencing these same symptoms and found hughdal's solution helpful, could you share which model you have, what OS version and energy manager version installed.
 
Thanks!
