Lenovo Yoga Flex :: 14 - Battery Charged To High Capacity / Enable Conservation Mode In Settings?

Jun 25, 2014

I have a new Flex 14.  When I turn it on, I frequently get the following message "The battery is charged to a high capacity. Staying above 70% of capacity for a long period of time is adverse to the battery health. Enable 'Conservation Mode' in Settings."  I can not find "Conservation Mode"  in "Settings." ?

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Energy Manager - Conservation Mode And Express Charging

Jan 5, 2014

I just have a few questions about how conservation mode and express charging work. These two are located in Energy Manager under settings.
Conservation mode keeps the battery percent at 55-60%. How is this done? Does the computer discharge until 55% and then charge back up to 60%? Also, if the computer is off, but the AC adapter is left in, will the computer still remain between 55 and 60%? Are there any detrimental effects on the battery?
Express charging allows the computer to be fully charged in 100 minutes. How is this done? Why is this feature not enabled by default? Are there any detrimental effects on the battery?

Lenovo Yoga Flex :: 13 - Battery (60% Charged) Lasts For Only An Hour?

Feb 21, 2013

I have been using my laptop at home for the past 6 months for most of the time. When I am running the computer I have it charged with the Optimised Battery Health option, so, less than 60% is charged all the time, and I have never removed the adapter if I am using it. But, when I went to sleep I removed the adapter from the laptop.
What happened: Today finally I am taking it out for a breath and it lasts for only an hour!!!!
What was on: I was using it to do some research online only. So technically only wifi was on - not even bluetooth or video or music play. I only ran Chrome, a dictionary software, and my Dropbox. Well, I actually turned the screen into very bright, which was full brightness minus two presses of F11 (to decrease the brightness).
Would it be a cause of upgrading to WINDOWS 8.1?! (like upgrade to iOS 7 on an Apple phone: running latest iOS consumes lots more battery capacity in older iPhone..)

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Black Screen - Bios Settings

Jan 14, 2014

I've been having problems with the dreaded "black screen" when starting my Yoga13 (but only somethimes!). To try and narrow it down, as there seem to be so many things that can cause this, I went into the Bios settings from "F2" and setup it up to ask for a "Power on" password before starting windows.
What I have discovered is that when the black screen occurs its BEFORE the Bios asks for the initial "Power on" password, ie I cannot see the box asking for the password and so Windows has NOT yet started to load. To overcome this, I just press the power button to switch off the system, wait 20seconds and then it will usually start.
Once past this, no errors ever occur on the windows side.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Updated Chrome Browser Optimized For High Resolution Screen

Dec 19, 2011

Update your Chrome browser to Version 37.0.2062.94 m and above ... It works fantastic with the Y2P and the text is so sharp now for high res laptops running Windows ...

I've just updated mine 15 minutes ago, haven't come across any bugs or usability issue.

Touching on the screen when typing still does bring up the OnScreen Keyboard ...

Oh well ... At least the text is much sharper now compared to the previous versions of browsers ... I have a Y2P (i5) ...

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Throttles CPU When In Tablet Mode Set To Portrait Orientation

Oct 24, 2012

When I set my Yoga 13 to tablet mode and set the orientation to Portrait mode, it throttles the CPU to 0.78 ghz and no matter what I run, it won't bring the CPU back to normal.  Once I flip it back to laptop mode, it's back to normal.  There needs to be an option turn the throttling feature on or off at will.
The other night I was showing my neighbor this glorious laptop and while demonstrating the game Birzzle, once in portrait mode, the game started freezing up because the CPU couldn't keep up.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z40-70 - How Does One Properly Evoke Conservation Mode

Sep 20, 2014

  Had my Z40-70 about two weeks now, and am having trouble getting Conservation Mode to actually kick in. So was wondering how to properly get this to go.
Had been calling up Energy Manager (v1.0.0.35) from the system tray, pressing the fly-out pane, clicking the last tab, and enabling Conservation Mode. Energy Manager even says it's on Conservation Mode, yet the battery is showing 'Fully Charged (100%)."

Whenever I happen to get Conservation Mode enabled, and need a fully charged battery the next day, I open the Energy Manager options and disable Conservation Mode. That usually sets it back to charging at 100%. But when I get back home ans want Conservation Mode, it never really goes into that mode - just says that it is.

So is there some ritual I should do each time, like turn off the laptop, unplug it, and turn it back on, then plug it back in, - or something else? Am at a total loss on getting this back into Conservation Mode.

What I had done on a previous attempt was to repair the program from the Lenovo rebuild partition (it is not hidden). But I don't want to do that every time I want Conservation Mode enabled again.

 There has to be something else that I'm missing, as even the instructions over at Conservation Mode in Lenovo Energy Manager doesn't work in this case.

So what's the secret in getting back into Conservation Mode?

Lenovo Yoga 11 Flex :: Battery Is Not Charging (sometimes)

Jul 24, 2013

I have the issue that my newly bought Yoga 11 (three weeks ago) is charging whenever it seems to feel like. The first time I have charged it, it went up to 92 % telling me its now in power state and not charging. This happened triple. Yesterday my Yoga was beneath the 50 % mark and I plugged in the powercable, the same again: not charging. I unplugged the power cable and at 0 % and a shutdown I booted it and it charged perfectely up to 99 % without moaning. I unplugged the cable and at 77 % the same again, I plugged in the power cable and it charged up to 99 % again.
Is this a bug (battery problem) or a feature (thresholds for a long living battery)?

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Battery Not Charging - 0% Available

Aug 13, 2014

My battery is at 0% available, plugged in charging, but it never goes about 0%. I've tried resetting the battery gauge in Energy Manger but that only runs for a few seconds and reports that the gauge reset is complete. I've also disabled the ACPI control in device manager then enabling it and the icon appears to be charging but only for a few seconds then stops. Having conservation mode on or off doesn't seem to make any difference.
The latest BIOS is installed and I believe I have the latest version of Energy Manager.

I recently bought an ideapad z510. You cannot separate the battery in this device, but i really like to keep my battery safe from some dangers like overcharging and discharging.

Now, my question is this: using conservation mode in energy management, which is the software that you can download it from lenovo, can keep my battery imaginary off of charging or not? because the battery charge remains at 60% when you plugged in, and doesn't this mode work when the computer is off , but it still plugged in?

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Flex :: Not Charging - When Plugged In Battery Continues To Drain

Jan 25, 2015

Earlier today, my Yoga 3 Pro decided to stop charging.  When plugged in, the battery continues to drain as if it was not plugged in.  I have tested the A/C adapter by plugging in my phone with a micro USB and that worked fine, and the USB charging slot works when my wireless mouse is plugged into it, so I assume it must be the strange Y3P USB cable that is not working.  
Would a normal USB to USB cable work for charging my laptop?  If not, how do I replace that "kink" USB cable?
