      • System Update does report available driver updates

        I have repeatedly tried to use the "system update" function of the Lenovo Companion tool. I have received some software updates this way, but it doesn't seem to report newer drivers -- even when several are published on the Lenovo support site when I check there. I was hoping that System Update would automate driver updates, but it hasn't for me.

        • Stop junk notifications

          If I get one more "promotion" in the Notifications, I *will* uninstall this piece of junk. I am NOT interested in getting blasted with your "monthly giveaways" or any other advertising, it is utterly annoying.

          • How do I opt out of the annoying advertisements, like the "Lenovo Rewards" messages?

            How do I opt out of the annoying "Lenovo Rewards" and other related advertisements? I have "What's New" and "Apps to Discover" turned off in the "customize companion" settings, but I'm still getting annoying promotions like this.

              • What happened to the "optimize" feature in Lenovo companion? The thing that cleared cashe? I miss that feature.

                Where did the Optimize feature go from Lenovo Companion? I used that all the time to clear cashe and keep my computer running at peak.

                I want it back, please help.

                  • How to Turn Off Conserve Mode without Lenovo Settings

                    Hello

                    I'm stuck on 60% battery, i turned on conserve mode while lenovo settings was working properly, now i have the "update lenovo system interface driver...." problem, i can't get beyond the 60%,

                    Its a lenovo miix 700, a 2 in 1 which i would like to bring on travel without bringing the charger, thus i would like it to charge to 100% so i wont worry too much about the battery.

                    Is there any way? registry? bios? to turn off the conserve mode outside of lenovo settings? i guess i can use a hack of some sort until this…

                    • System Update needs tgo provide an error code when it fails to work.

                      My System Update recently stopped installing updates. It will inform me what updates are available, and allow me to sewlect them for installation. They download and System Update immediately issues the message the updates failed to install. No reason, no error code.

                      I tried uninstalling System Update and reinstalling it. Same problem.

                        Hi everyone,

                        I am aware of the issues that everyone has been having. We are releasing a large update around 1/27 for the Companion application and the system interface driver that will hopefully resolve the last of these issues.

                        Please stay tuned and make sure you get these updates near the end of the month.

                        Thanks,
                        James

                        It would be a simple feature to remember the last user set state of the keyboard backlight and resume to that state after waking the system from sleep, hibernate or the screen being off/screensaver.

                              Provide the ability to disable Lenovo rewards notifications. This is a very annoying and frequent popup that could disrupt important meetings or presentations. I find it hard to believe there is no disable notification option for this.

                                    Thank you for your input. The Lenovo Companion Team is aware of this issue and is working on correcting this in a future release of Companion.

                                    We appreciate your feedback.

                                    Best Regards,
                                    The Lenovo Companion Team

                                  • I'm on Lenovo 90F1 on windows 10 and The Companion window pops up saying...

                                    The Companion Window pops up and says Enter into the Monthly give away. It has two options, Log In and No Thanks. So I click Log In to enter, it takes me to the Launch App Page, I click Launch App, A window pops up and says I'm now Logged In. Then I think Great, Now How do I enter into the Give Away, so with no other option presented on window, I close the window, go back to the original entry screen and it says, I'm not logged in so please log in. Except I just Logged In so…

                                    • Optimization was a great funktion within the companion. Make it work, update it, dont delete it. It has vanished now. Give it back!

                                      I want the full optimise- funktion back! You have torn out the heart of the lenovo companion!

                                          Since 2 months i get the following error on my ThinkPad T440s (Windows 10 Pro):

                                          "Beim Abrufen neuer Updates ist ein Problem aufgetreten. Versuchen Sie es später erneut."

                                          Any solutions?

                                          Best regards
