Sony :: Windows 7 & VAIO Power Management

May 21, 2009

I know of course that the current Sony utilities are not really meant for Windows 7.

However, does anyone have Windows 7 RC with the VAIO Power Management utility installed?

If so, do you also see the issue where the PM plan is not called 'VAIO Optimized' but rather something like 'SPMResMui.dll,-100'? If you do not see this, could you please tell me the version of VAIO Power Management you are using?

Sony :: Alternative To Vaio TT

Jun 16, 2009

What other alternatives to the Vaio TT is there out there? I *really* loved my TT, but unfortunately I had two with the same touchpad problem and don't want to risk getting a third (although Sony was very helpful in replacing and trying to resolve the problem).

I especially liked the high resolution, the balanced size, the SSD and the battery time.

Dell :: Windows 7 Power Management

Sep 11, 2009

I've installed Windows 7 on 2 machines, 1 on my XPS 1340, the other on a Thinlpad X60s.

The Thinkpad is a fresh install, but somehow has a power management scheme where the battery isn't charged automatically even when plugged in, and dims the screen when the computer is inactive

Acer :: 4810TZ: Power Management

Jul 5, 2009

When I unplug my laptop from the AC adapter, Acer's ePower system automatically dims the LCD brightness to a setting that is 2 levels above the lowest (and 7 below the highest). However, when resuming the laptop from standby, I noticed that the setting is increased to 4 levels above the lowest (and 5 below the highest). I'm kind of a stickler for these sorts of things and would prefer for Windows not to change the LCD brightness if the ePower manager is supposed to be handling it. Is anyone else noticing this, and if so, have you corrected it somehow?

FYI, I should mention that I recently downloaded an updated version of Acer's ePower management system from Acer's support website - this updated version corrected an error that was occurring where my optical drive wouldn't "wake up" after ePower management shut it down, so I would prefer not to downgrade.

I'm frankly a little confused about where exactly all the Acer-specific power options are located. What is the difference between ePower and PowerSmart? Or are they the same thing? I could go on, but I think I've raised enough questions.

I just got a Acer One 751. It has an Atom Z520 1.33GHz CPU running at 1.24GHz.

When I'm running on battery it's not downclocking, it keeps running at 1.24Ghz. How can I downclock it?

My Samsung NC10 allows me to clock the 1.6Ghz Atom to 800MHz.

Sony :: ADH Not Available -- Alternative Warranty

Apr 20, 2010

Just got off the phone with Sony and found out that you can only purcahse the accidental damage coverage from Sony if you buy the laptop from them.

Since I picked up my laptop from Amazon, I cannot get ADH.

I feel pretty strongly about having ADH coverage and am curious if any of you have picked this up through a third party. In particular I would like something that will cover the machine from:

Normal mechanical failure
Water damage
Being dropped/sat on

Acer :: Aspire Timeline And Optical Drive Power Management

Nov 8, 2009

Has anyone noticed that Optical Drive Power Management occassionally stop working, i.e., pressing the eject button on your laptop, Windows does not detect your optical drive? Does anyone know how to get Windows to detect the drive, short of restarting?

(my OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64. I am using Optical Drive Power Management for Windows Vista Home Premium 64 - I just installed the program in compatibility mode. Before anyone suggests this is the cause of the problem, I was experiencing this same problem in Vista Home Premium 64 and was hopeful that Windows 7 would fix it...)

Acer :: Aspir 5942g Power Management And Backup Manager

May 5, 2010

I have this acer with these two problems.

Firstly the power management button does not seem to work.

I have of course launch manager and power management programs installed.

When i press the button, it does light up green, but i have no indication on the screen like i have when i activate wlan or bluetooth.

When the drivers of the powersmart manager are uninstalled the button does not light up green when i press it, so it partially works.

Also, nothing changes in my power settings nor the screen brightens down, no sign that it works.

Actions i took so far:
I uninstalled and installed both programs, and i run them as admin.

I installed first the launch manager and then the power management.

Nothing changed.

I go to c: program files:acer:acer powersmart manager and try to open the right exe file which i think is ePowerMsg but then i get an error message saying that the element ePowerMsg stopped working.

The window is this:
Is this the right exe?
I tried with ac only, ac and battery, battery only, same results.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z710 Power Management Can't Install Windows 7 64bit

Apr 24, 2014

Z710 power management can't install, win7 64 because "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software"
 
I pushed the "Install this driver software anyway" but the hardware still wasn't recognized after installation/reboot.
 
So I installed instead of that the Lenovo Energy Management Software Ver 7.0.3.4 ...

This is working, but I dont know if it is a problem for my system becouse of incompatibility with the battery of Z710.

Any digitally signed driver for my Z710 or I can use the version 7.0.3.4 without problem?

Dell Inspiron 7000 :: Power Management - System Keeps Sleeping While Need It To Stay Awake

Dec 7, 2014

I have a new Inspiron 7000 series that I'm setting up.  I have a restore app running to download a sizable amount of data from my old backup to this new computer.

Although I have the laptop plugged in and told it to NEVER sleep when plugged in - and I adjusted the hard drive (advanced power management) to stay awake for 120 minutes, it still seems to be going to sleep after a short (less than 1 hour period of time).  

I have to hit the power button and wait for the screen saver, then I swipe it out of the way and must login to my laptop.  The restore application stops running when it goes into this sleep mode. 

Frustrating as my settings all seem to imply the system should stay awake.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Sleep And Hibernate Functions Not Work Well - Power Management?

Feb 23, 2013

My new Lattitude laptop powers back on (sort of) when in either sleep or hibernate modes, but I have to power off in order to get the computer to start. Usually happens after a few hours of being in either mode. Does it have something to do with power management?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: ThinkPad E520 - Battery Icon For Power Management Did Not Work

Feb 27, 2013

I bought 2 of these in oct 2011 for my twins going to college. My daughters has had no problems. The other one died in may 2012 and was repaired under warranty. It died again in November 2012. I was able to get it running by removing the battery and disconnecting the cmos battery and letting it sit for a while. 

It happened again, and this time I can't revive it. I want to add that I think there was something wrong when we got it back from repair. The battery icon for the Lenovo power management did not work, but the windows one did. In hindsight I think this had something to do with nvram problem I have since heard so much about.

Sony :: Power- With Vaio Z

Aug 14, 2009

I'm typing this on my other computer, but my Z has mysteriously encountered some power problems all of a sudden.

I can't turn it on. It just happened all of a sudden. No noise, no lights, no movement.

I did manage to turn it on by taking out the battery, unplugging it, and waiting 6-8 hours afterwards, it would turn on, and in the middle of booting up, it turns off. If I'm lucky, it'll make it all the way into windows and then shut off again.

I have to mention that I have opened up the laptop previously about a month ago, and cleaned the vents and fans off with compressed air, and applied AS5 to the CPU and GPU. Not sure if that's related, but that was a while ago.

Sony :: Vaio SR490 Power

Nov 11, 2009

So my brand new SR490 is already having some weird power issue. What happens is, the adapter stops powering the computer. This started happening randomly last week. I would be sitting there on the computer, and the screen would dim (I have it set to do this when it goes onto battery power).

I would move the adapter around, make sure it's plugged in right, but that didn't change anything. After a few minutes,

it would switch back to AC power by itself. It was worse last night, when the battery actually died because it wasn't getting a charge. The computer was just sitting on the desk and it kept switching between AC power and the battery .....

Sony :: Vaio PCG-FRV26 No Power

Nov 8, 2009

I've been all over the internet, gathering whatever info I can find, but I'm stuck. It's a Vaio PCG-FRV26 (PCG-9J5L) that just shut down one day, had a very slight 'burn' smell & will not power on, no lights. Opening it up it was full of dust balls & the fans were filthy - cleaned it real nice with vacuum & compressed air. I replaced the power jack, had it tested & there definitely is power to the board, also had the AC adapter/charger tested & it's good. I also played with various combinations of RAM chips in & out, re-set button, on/off with adapter & battery in/out combinations, holding on button variations etc. Still no lights or power. I've opened it up 3 times now, everything looks new/intact/great.

I have a PDF manual for this series, but cannot find the CMOS battery in the laptop! I don't think the manual is that great, not enough info, detailed explode schematic is not enough, tricky to follow, says where the CMOS/RTC bat is but I can't find it. Is it under the motherboard? do I have to remove MB?

If laptop did overheat - can I re-set it?

Sony :: VAIO Hibernates On Power Supply

Jul 17, 2009

I have a VAIO VGN SZ230P. It has always worked fine. Recently, it has begun to hibernate after about 5 minutes when plugged into its power supply. When on battery, it operates normally. I have tried two different power supplies, same problem. All sleep, hibernation and power setting are off, yet it still happens. All virus and malware scans come up clean.

Sony :: Vaio Z Freezes Up When Returned To AC Power

Feb 1, 2009

I have a Vaio Z550N and although it was working perfectly until this point, now I am having the issue of the computer freezing up (completely non-responsive) when I re-attach it to the AC adapter after having had it on battery power.

It doesn't happen every time... but it is enough to be exceedingly irritating. The only major change I have made to my computer recently is upgrading the BIOS to the latest version from the Sony Support site.

Lenovo X230 Series ThinkPad :: Battery Drains Quickly In Sleep Mode / Power Management Center Won't Run

Apr 15, 2009

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. 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.

Sony :: Vaio Does Not Turn On Without Battery, Bad Power Supply

May 4, 2010

I have a 12'' sony vaio with a 16V power adapter. My battery is not good anymore, it was not even holding for 20Min, but my problem now is that the computer does not turn on without the battery at all. I have to leave it charging for hours, then it will go on, but in the middle of the windows loading process it shuts down and does not show any signs of life until you leave it charging for another hour.The voltage output out of the power supply shows 14.70 ~ 15.20 never gets to 16V. Now, comes the questions...

This particular laptop needs a good battery to " buffer" power and the AC adapter only charges the battery but does not have enough Amps to run the computer without the battery?

or

Do i have a Bad power adapter that is not even charging the battery properly?

or

Bad power supply and battery?
